A Hudson Valley man who seriously injured a local man and his infant daughter in a head-on crash, while driving high, is heading to jail.

 On June 7, 2015, Kevin Coyle, now 34, of Gardiner was driving on Route 44/55 in the town of Gardiner while impaired by marijuana and oxycodone.

During his drive, Coyle’s vehicle crossed over the double yellow line and collided head on with a vehicle in the oncoming lane of traffic.

As a result of this collision, the occupants of the other vehicle, a 36-year old Gardiner man and his 1-year-old daughter, both suffered serious injuries.

The infant, who was secured in a rear facing car seat at the time of the crash, is still recovering and receiving treatment for a fractured skull, officials say.

A person who was driving behind Coyle, told police that Coyle was driving erratically for many miles and crossed over the double yellow lines multiple times, before causing the head-on crash.

In June, Coyle pleaded guilty to first-degree vehicular assault. On Tuesday, he was sentenced to one to three years in prison. His New York State driver’s license was also revoked.

The victims spoke at sentencing about how their lives have been impacted by Coyle’s decision to drive while impaired by drugs.
