NEWBURGH — One person is dead and another hospitalized in a three-vehicle crash on Route 9W Monday, according to Newburgh Town Police Chief Michael Clancy.

Pronounced dead at the scene was Anthony Andrulewicz, 83.

The crash happened at 10:35 a.m. and shut down Route 9W near Chestnut Lane, Clancy said.

A preliminary investigation found that Andrulewicz was driving east on Chestnut Lane in a pickup truck when he ran a red light and hit two vehicles on Route 9W.

The first vehicle was driven by Lawrence Lissauer of New Windsor. Andrulewicz’ truck then hit a northbound sedan driven by Dianna Greiner of Milton. The pickup then crossed over 9W, hit an embankment and rolled onto its roof.

Greiner was taken by ambulance to St. Luke’s Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Lissauer was not treated.

Traffic on the heavily travelled road was diverted between the Route 32 intersection and Fostertown Road causing traffic congestion and delays on other roads for over four hours.

Clancy said there didn’t seem to be any indication of the crash being related to substance abuse.

The Middle Hope and Cronomer Valley fire departments assisted at the scene.
