Well Liked Warsaw teacher killed in Mount Morris multi-vehicle crash
State Police identified Stephen L. Baker, 41, of the village of Wyoming, as the victim in a fatal, 3-vehicle accident on Oct. 5th in the town of Mount Morris. At around 6 p.m. a vehicle traveling southbound on Route 36 completed a left turn while a pickup truck directly behind the southbound vehicle was struck from behind by another pickup truck towing a flatbed carrying a car. After striking the first pickup from behind, the second pickup truck with the flatbed traveled into the opposite lane of traffic and struck Baker's oncoming, northbound vehicle.
Baker was pronounced dead at the scene and a young child passenger in Baker’s vehicle was transported to Strong Hospital with minor injuries, State troopers said. The driver of the first pickup had no injuries while the driver of the second pickup had minor injuries and was taken to Noyes Hospital and released.
Warsaw Superintendent Matt Wilkins described Baker as “a vital and important member of the Warsaw school community” and said the entire Baker family would be in the thoughts and prayers of district staff. “This is a very difficult time for our students, faculty and staff. Our grief teams are readily available for any student, staff or faculty member who may need support,” continued Wilkins. “If a parent or guardian has any concerns regarding your child’s reaction to this loss, please contact your child’s teacher or principal.”
Warsaw Athletic Director Ed Stores Jr. said: “Simply put, everybody loved Mr. Baker. He was a good friend, a great teacher and one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. Our school community has suffered a tremendous loss.”
