Driving over the speed limit can lead to a lot of danger. When you’re traveling over the speed limit in a work zone, it can become even more dangerous. In Albany, a man is accused of traveling at high rates of speed on the Northway that led to the death of one driver.
The police had pursued Skyler Crouse, 30, because he was traveling at 90 miles per hour in a work zone. Crouse didn’t pull over, though. Instead, he continued at his speed. When he tried to exit the freeway, Crouse had struck another vehicle.
On that off-ramp, the driver of the other vehicle died following the crash. Crouse continued on during his morning pursuit, and had one tire that was deflated. Crouse eventually stopped, leading to his arrest. Crouse is now being charged with several possible lengthy sentences, which includes vehicular manslaughter.
