Goshen, NY -- August 12, 2019, one person was killed and another was injured due to an accident where their vehicle and a garbage truck collided.

According to investigations from New York State Police officials, the crash happened at around 12:15 p.m. at Pumpkin Swamp Road and Pulaski Highway.

Preliminary reports indicated that two people were in an SUV traveling through the intersection. Police allege the SUV failed to yield to a garbage truck, resulting in a severe collision.

As a result of the crash, the SUV driver died at the scene. EMS transported the SUV passenger to a hospital with critical injuries. It appears no one else was hurt.

Currently, additional factors leading up to the crash remain unclear.

Commentary

Seeing allegations that the SUV failed to yield may lead some people to close the book on this accident. What I try to remind people about is that as far accident investigations go, few are more complex than ones involving commercial vehicles. The fact of the matter is there is no such thing as a simple or straight-forward truck wreck. Without the right tools and years of industry experience, police may overlook crucial details. Those affected by the crash deserve to know they're getting the full story. Until all the facts are brought to light, it's best people avoid jumping to conclusions.
