2 From Hudson Valley Killed Driving Back From Yankee Game
Two people were killed and four others seriously injured following a two-car crash.
On Friday around 11 p.m., New York State Police in Monroe and Haverstraw responded to a two-car fatal crash on State Route 6 in the town of Woodbury.
An investigation revealed that a 2007 Dodge Caliber traveling west on State Route 6 crossed over into the eastbound lane. A 2016 Nissan Titan was traveling east and moved into the opposite lane to avoid the Dodge. The Dodge Caliber corrected itself, moved back into the westbound lane and hit the Nissan Titan, police say.
The two occupants of the Dodge Caliber, Jennifer Haines, 37, of Beacon and 29-year-old Giosue Falanga of Middletown were pronounced dead at the scene.
Sources tell Hudson Valley Post the pair were driving back to the Hudson Valley after attending Friday night's New York Yankees game in the Bronx. Falanga's obituary confirms the crash occurred while returning from the Yankee game.
There were four occupants in the Nissan Titan. Two of the occupants were transported to Good Samaritan Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and the other two occupants were transported to Orange Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, according to New York State Police
