Just a few weeks from graduation, a Hudson Valley high school senior tragically lost her life.

On Friday around 11:30 a.m., New York State Police from the Poughkeepsie barracks investigated a fatal motor vehicle crash in the town of Lagrange involving one car.

An initial investigation suggests 18-year-old Jennifer Dickson of Pleasant Valley lost control of a 2017 Honda Fit while heading south on Freedom Road, police say.

Dickson's car left the road and hit a utility pole. She was transported to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital where she was pronounced deceased. Dickson was a senior at Arlington High School.

"It is with deep sadness that we must inform you of a recent loss to our school community. Senior Jennifer Dickson was involved in a serious car accident on Friday and passed away as a result of the injuries she sustained," Arlington Executive Principal Paul M. Fanuele wrote on the school's website.

Grief counseling will be available to Arlington students and teachers.
