Car Crash

Monday night proved to be catastrophic for three road travellers. All three died in a fatal car accident in Stanford, NY. The vehicle involved in the accident caught fire after crashing into a house in Dutchess County.

Specific Details of the Accident:

The police received information about the accident at approximately 11:00 PM. The accident happened at the 5900 Block of State Route 82.

This accident occurred because the driver did not negotiate a curve on Route 82 at Bulls Head Road properly, then lost control of the car.

As a result, the car proceeded to crash into a tree in the home’s front yard, coming to rest against the porch. The impact of the crash was so powerful that the car, tree, and home were quickly engulfed in flames.

The driver and front passenger were declared dead at the scene. The third victim was airlifted to Mid-Houston Regional Hospital where, he later succumbed to his injuries and died.

The only person who escaped injury was the homeowner, Sue Treacy. She was inside her house, resting in her bed when she suddenly saw the flaming vehicle against the porch. She called 911 at once.
