The Erie County Coroner, Lyell Cook, identified the man who died in a car accident Monday night as George Lascek, 84, of Albion. 

According to police, Lascek was driving east on West Lake Road – just west of Eaton Road – around 8:20 Monday night when his car hit a tow truck, which had been parked on the side of the road, with its lights on, assisting another vehicle.

Lascek was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cook tells us an autopsy is planned for Tuesday afternoon to determine the cause of death.
