      An Altmar man left work prematurely Monday morning, then was killed at an unknown time when his vehicle went off Route 13 in the town of Albion and hit trees.

      The body of William A. Sampson, 60, of 120 Bridge St., was found Tuesday morning by his wife, Sharon, at the bottom of an embankment, where he had been ejected from his pickup, according to state police. His body was removed to Syracuse, where, despite the uncertain circumstances of his death, it was decided by the Onondaga County medical examiner that no autopsy will be performed, state police said.

      Blood samples were taken for tests, however, police said.

      Mr. Sampson left home about 7 a.m. Monday to go to work at K&S Tire, Williamstown. He was not there long, however, deciding to leave work, police said.

      It is unknown whether he was driving Monday morning or later in the day when he was proceeding west on Route 13, toward Altmar, when his truck went off the right side of the road. The truck went down an embankment and hit trees, causing him to be thrown through the windshield, police said.

      After he had failed to return home for his wife's birthday, she and other family members set out Tuesday morning to search for him. Mrs. Sampson found her husband's wrecked truck, and then his body, at about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

      Mr. Sampson had worked at K&S Tire for the past seven years. He was previously employed at Davis-Walbridge Construction, Syracuse.

      Born Feb. 29, 1940, in Altmar, son of Frank and Alice Olin Sampson, he attended Altmar High School and was a life resident of Altmar.

      He married Sharon Barnard on Aug. 25, 1984. He had been married previously.

      Surviving besides his wife are five sons, Kenneth W., Ogdensburg, Scott A., Williamstown, Mark W., Puerto Rico, Frank E., Altmar, and Glenn R., Natural Bridge; three stepsons, Kenneth Dupont and Gary Dupont, both of Pulaski, and Ronald Dupont, Williamstown; two stepdaughters, Tina Thurston, Altmar, and Tammy Henry, Smithfield, N.C.; a brother, Franklyn, Richland; several grandchildren and a great-granddaughter.

      The funeral will be at 10 a.m. Friday at Foster-Hax Funeral Home, Pulaski. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery. Calling hours will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.

      The family of an Altmar man, who did not return home Monday night, found him dead Tuesday morning, lying in front of his upturned pickup truck down an embankment, state police said.

      William A. Sampson, 60, of 120 Bridge St. was driving on county Route 13, about three miles west of the intersection with state Route 104, when his pickup went off the road, state police Senior. Investigator Wayne Corsa said. Sampson had left home Monday morning, but Corsa did not know where Sampson was going.

      Sampson's wife, Sharon, was alarmed when she noticed on Tuesday morning that her husband had not returned the night before, Corsa said. She called relatives, who drove around looking for him, Corsa said. The relatives investigated when they saw some tire marks off county Route 13 about 8:30 a.m.

      They found Sampson's upturned truck down a 40-foot embankment, through some trees and heavy brush, Corsa said. The road curves to the left at the accident site, and Sampson appeared to have driven straight, Corsa said.

      The investigator did not know what caused Sampson to go off the road but said there is no indication of foul play, and no other vehicles appeared to be involved.

      Sampson was not wearing his seat belt and was ejected from the pickup, Corsa said.

      Corsa did not know when the accident happened, but because the truck's lights were on, he surmised it occurred during the night. Sampson apparently was heading home because he was traveling west on county Route 13, Corsa said.

      The Onondaga County Medical Examiner's Office ruled Sampson died of multiple blunt-force trauma, Corsa said. The investigators are waiting for a blood analysis.
