On July 4th, 2014 a Coxsackie man is said to have caused a serious crash that killed two. On Monday, March 28th, 2016 nearly 20 months after the crash, the driver was arraigned and charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, driving while intoxicated, and additional felonies.
According to authorities, the driver was intoxicated and speeding (evidence suggests the vehicle was traveling as fast as 150mph) down the Thruway when the crash occurred.
The driver, just 24 years old at the time, lost control of his vehicle and slammed into another car and a tractor-trailer. The impact was so strong it split the defendant’s vehicle into two.
Two passengers didn’t survive the crash, a 24 year old Dutchess County woman and a 23 year old Greene County man.
