Police investigate a fatal incident: A person fell out of a moving trailer

On April 6, 2024, at approximately 3:04 PM, the State Police in Watertown received a call about an individual who fell out of a moving trailer on State Route 12E in the town of Brownville, Jefferson County.

During the investigation, it was discovered that a 2019 Gray Ram pick-up truck driven by Robert P. Woroniecki, age 59 from Stony Brook, NY, was towing a 2024 Gray Airstream (House Trailer) westbound on SR 12E. His wife, Monika I. Woroniecka age 58, and other family members were in the trailer for the last 20 minutes of their trip from Stony Brook.

According to witnesses behind the Airstream, they saw the passenger-side door of the Airstream open, and Monika Woroniecka's arm was hanging on the door. Due to the wind, the door swung open, causing her to be thrown out of the Airstream. Monika suffered head injuries after hitting the shoulder of the road. She was taken to Samaritan Medical Center's Emergency Room by Cape Vincent Ambulance but died due to her injuries.

The investigation is still ongoing.
