Warwick Teen Dies After I-84 Crash
An accident on I-84 has left a Warwick man dead. NY State police said that 19-year-old David Newsome died Monday.
The Times Herald Record is reporting that Newsome was driving westbound in a 2005 Honda at about 12:45 p.m. when he went off the roadway and struck the bridge abutment head-on. Sgt. Eric Suarez of Troop F in the Town of Wallkill said Newsome was pronounced dead at the scene by the Orange County medical examiner,
First responders initially called in a medical helicopter but soon canceled that request, according to the Times Herald Record.
The crash shut down both westbound lanes for about two and half hours, however no other cars were involved in the crash.
Sgt Suarez said it was too soon to speculate about the cause of the crash and said the investigation is ongoing.
