An 80-year-old Florida man was killed and his 70-year-old passenger seriously injured in a two-car crash at North and Countryline roads in Alden shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday.

Thomas Luche, of Mount Dora, Fla., was eastbound on North Road and he apparently failed to yield the right of-way to Cindy Miller, 43, of Attica, who was southbound on Countryline Road, according to Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard. The report mentioned no injuries for Miller.

Luche was extricated from his car and flown by Mercy Flight to Erie County Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. His passenger, Griffith Warrick, 70, of Leesburg, Fla., was in serious, but stable condition at ECMC, the sheriff said.
