On Monday around 7:30 a.m., New York State Police responded to a serious personal injury accident at mile marker 33.5 eastbound on I-87, in the village of Sloatsburg.

A preliminary investigation revealed a 2007 Toyota Avalon, driven by 52-year-old Louis M. Lupo of New Windsor, exited the New York State Thruway while heading south and struck the rear of a tractor-trailer which was parked on the right shoulder.

Lupo was extricated from the vehicle and transported to a nearby community field where he was airlifted to Westchester Medical Center with life-threatening injuries and is currently listed in critical condition, police say.

David M. Bucci, 43, of Maryland, was in the sleeping berth of the tractor-trailer, parked on the shoulder, when the collision occurred and was not injured, according to the police.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
