Likely Road Rage Incident Leads to Local Woman Dragged By Car, Struck By Another
A Hudson Valley woman suffered serious injuries after she was dragged by one car and then hit by another.
On Wednesday around 10:30 a.m., the Ulster Police Department responded to a 911 call for a car vs. pedestrian accident at the intersection of Route 32 and Route 9W in the Town of Ulster.
Arriving officers found 21-year-old Nyasia A. Mayers of Kingston with injuries to her head and torso. She was treated on and then flown to Westchester Chester Medical Center with serious injuries.
It’s believed that Mayers exited her car at the intersection and approached a 2009 Nissan Versa driven by 25-year-oold Natasha McCoy of Naponach and began a physical altercation with McCoy.
During the altercation, Mayers got entangled in McCoy’s car, as she was attempting to flee the scene, and thrown to the pavement, police say.
36-year-old Shawn M. Smith of Lake Katrine noticed Mayers in the roadway. He tried to stop, but his 2005 Nissan Altima collided into Mayers.
No charges have been filed at this time, however the police investigation is ongoing.
The Ulster Police Department was assisted on scene by the Kingston Police Department, New York State Police, Ulster County Sheriff’s Office, Ulster Hose Fire Department, East Kingston Fire Department, Mobile Life Support and Life Net.
