Dutchess County Truck Crash
A rollover accident report arrived after 1:30 a.m. Sunday. Witnesses said the driver of the car was trapped inside their vehicle. According to the Rhinebeck Fire Department, first responders found a pickup truck that had veered off the road and hit a utility pole and a tree. By the time they arrived at the scene, firefighters said the driver was able to get out of the vehicle.
EMS was called to assess the driver and then sent him to the hospital. There were no other occupants in the truck. The vehicle was removed and an investigation by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office is currently underway.
Fatal motorcycle accident
Another early morning crash is also being investigated following the death of a 25-year-old motorcyclist. At 6:45 a.m. the biking accident was reported, but authorities believe it happened much earlier in the morning.
The accident happened on Colonial Avenue in the village of Warwick. The driver was identified as a 25-year-old Monroe resident. Police say the single-vehicle crash likely happened several hours before it was discovered. A family member of the victim confirmed on the Warwick Village Police Department Facebook page that the driver was alone at the time of the crash. Investigators are asking anyone who may have more information about the fatal crash to call them at 845 986-5000.
