On May 1, 2023, at approximately 9:45 a.m., a trooper was patrolling State Route 17 in the town of Goshen when he observed a white 2008 Mercedes C-300 traveling west at a high rate of speed. The trooper attempted to stop the vehicle. The operator of the vehicle failed to comply and attempted to elude the trooper. The vehicle continued on State Route 17 and exited at 122 onto Route 302 and onto Beverly Drive where the vehicle stopped. The operator then fled the vehicle on foot and was eventually taken into custody without incident. He was identified as Ronaldo Depass, age 23 from the city of Syracuse. Depass reached speeds of 130 miles per hour. The vehicle was impounded and Depass was issued 34 tickets returnable to Town of Goshen and the Town of Wallkill Court.
