Severe LaGrange Crash Being Investigated
The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that they are looking into a two-car crash that happened on Noxon Road near Vincent Road. This happened in the Town of LaGrange at around 7:20 in the morning on April 24. The crash was reported to be serious.
The initial investigation shows that a 1994 Chevy pickup that was being driven by Matthew V. Amicucci was traveling west and crossed over the center pavement and hit a 2011 Ford Edge being driven by Brenda V. Swatek. The pickup caught fire and the Ford went off the road and became submerged in a pond. Amicucci was taken out of the fire and transported by airlift to Westchester Medical Center. Swatek was taken to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital by ambulance.
They both suffered significant injuries, and Amicucci’s were reported to be life-threatening.
The road was closed for around three and a half hours after the crash.
Responders on the scene were able to put out the fire. Three emergency responders were treated for exposure to the chemical in the extinguishers.
