The New York State Police are investigating a fatal motor vehicle accident that occurred on Sunday July 1, 2018. At approximately 7:30 pm, the Town of Lloyd Police Department responded to a report of an erratic operator. An officer from the Town of Lloyd PD located the vehicle, a 2008 Porsche Cayenne, and attempted to stop the vehicle. The vehicle failed to comply and fled westbound on State Route 299 at a high rate of speed. Members of the state police assisted the Town of Lloyd PD with the pursuit. As the vehicle approached the intersection at South Street, it struck the side of a 2008 Ford. The Porsche then crossed over into the eastbound lane striking a 2018 Ford pickup head on. A 2016 Toyota then struck the rear of the Porsche.
The driver of the Porsche, Ryan B. Williams, age 29 of Poughkeepsie, NY, was transported to Westchester Medical Center and is listed in critical but stable condition.
