DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Andrew V. Davis, 22, of Poughkeepsie, was killed Tuesday when he lost control of his car on Federal Road 44, crossed the double yellow line and slammed into another vehicle in oncoming traffic, according to the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department.
An investigation by the department's Traffic Enforcement Unit found that Davis was traveling westbound in a 2006 Volkswagon at 1:50 p.m. when he lost control and hit a 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, operated by a 68-year-old male, with a 68-year-old female passenger, both from Millbrook, according to Capt.
