On Sunday around 7:45 a.m., New York State Police responded to a serious personal injury crash on I-87 northbound, in the town of Clarkstown, Rockland County.
A preliminary investigation determined a 2015 Honda Accord, operated by Alon M. Forbes, 18, of Bronx, was traveling northbound in the area of mile marker 18.7, when he struck the rear of a 2016 Subaru Outback.
The Honda continued off the right shoulder, through the guide rail, and came to rest down a 40-foot embankment.
