Two dead after crash on thruway caused car to split in half
Two people are dead after a four-car crash Friday night on the thruway, just West of Albany.
State Police say that a Volkswagon driven by Tyler Pascuzzi, 24, was speeding when it struck a Honda Civic driven by Brian Miller, 29. Miller then lost control of his car and struck the center divider before coming to a rest.
Police say the Volkswagon proceeded to spin and struck a tractor trailer causing the two passengers
to be thrown from the car and the car to break in half.
The two passengers, identified as
24, were pronounced dead at the scene. Pascuzzi and Miller were both transported to Albany Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the tractor trailer was not injured.
Officials have not filed any charges but they are continuing to investigate the incident.
