One person is dead after a fatal car crash on the Sprain Brook Parkway shut down all northbound lanes early Monday morning.
According to New York State Police, the three-car crash happened around 1:05 a.m. in the Greenburgh portion of the Parkway between Jackson Avenue and Route 100B and closed all traffic in that area until about 7:30 a.m. Police say the collisions were two separate incidents.
The events leading up to both crashes are still under investigation, according to police.
The first crash resulted in the death of Randolph Castillo, 37, of East Boston, Massachusetts. Police said he was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to police, Castillo was driving his 2019 Honda Civic with passenger Brandon Glawson, 36, of Dedham, Massachusetts when he struck a 2014 Acura MDX operated by 30-year-old Haverstraw resident Emilo Alvarez-Alvarez. Both Glawson and Alvarez-Alvarez sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Westchester Medical Center.
The second collision happened when a 2009 Ford Fusion sideswiped Castillo’s car. The two adult occupants were uninjured, police said.
Monday’s report comes just days after state police investigated a wrong-way crash that killed one and injured two in Peekskill.
Around 9:10 p.m. on Dec. 23, troopers responded to reports of someone traveling northbound in the southbound lanes of Route 9 around Main Street. Yorktown resident Mark Cope, 41, was under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into a vehicle containing three passengers.
The driver, 32-year-old Ossining resident Shina McClam, was pronounced dead at the scene, while her six-year-old daughter and 18-year-old niece sustained serious injuries that were deemed non-life-threatening. The niece was transported to Westchester Medical Center by ambulance, police said, while McClam’s daughter was airlifted to the Valhalla hospital for further care.
Cope was arrested at the scene and was charged with 1st degree vehicular manslaughter, a class C felony. He was remanded to Westchester County Jail and is scheduled to appear before the Peekskill City Court on Tuesday at 9 a.m.
