Maplebrook instructor killed in car crash
AMENIA — The private Maplebrook School on Route 22 in Amenia has lost one of its own. The New York State Police (NYSP) Troop K investigated a fatal accident on Route 44 in Pleasant Valley last week, which took the life of Stanford resident and Maplebrook swim instructor Erin T. Clancy, age 50.
Clancy was killed on Wednesday, Sept. 7, in a car crash that involved a Poughkeepsie resident.
Thirty-three-year-old Camay O. Pryce of Poughkeepsie was driving a 2009 Nissan Murano, stated the NYSP. The official report notes that Pryce passed two vehicles while driving on Route 44 in Pleasant Valley, not far from Millbrook, before striking a 2015 Chrysler Town & Country driven by Clancy.
“At approximately 5:50 a.m., Troopers responded to State Route 44 near Brown Road for a report of a head-on collision,” stated Troop K.
Early investigations revealed Pryce’s 2009 Nissan was headed eastbound, passed two vehicles and struck Clancy, who was traveling westbound.
Clancy was pronounced dead on the scene. Pryce was transported to a local area hospital for serious injuries.
The NYSP Poughkeepsie investigative team is asking any possible witnesses who have not yet spoken to the State Police to contact the Troop K Bureau of Investigation at 845-677-7300.
The investigation is ongoing; NYSP police said more information will be released as it becomes available.
