Dutchess County Sheriff's Report

The following information was provided by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO). All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

LaGrange one-car serious crash under investigation

The DCSO reported a one-car serious crash in the Town of LaGrange, not far from Millbrook, at approximately 3:05 a.m. Wednesday, July 13.

Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Route 55 near Sedgewick Road for a report of a crash, and upon arrival it was discovered that it was a one-car crash with one person seriously injured. A preliminary investigation revealed that a 2011 Honda Accord with three occupants was traveling westbound on Route 55 when the operator lost control of the vehicle, after which it left the roadway and struck several trees.

As a result the front-seat passenger, Samantha Mincey, 31, of Poughkeepsie, was ejected and suffered serious injuries.

Mincey was initially transported by ambulance to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital for treatment and was later transferred to Westchester Medical Center.

The operator and rear passenger were also transported to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital with minor injuries; all occupants were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

No charges were filed at the time of the police report. The investigation is continuing by the DCSO’s Detective Bureau and Crash Investigation Unit; driver fatigue appeared to be the primary factor.

The DCSO was assisted at the scene by the NYS Department of Transportation and the Town of LaGrange Fire Department. More information may be released at a later time as it becomes available.
