Hudson Valley High School Deals With Tragedy For 3rd Year
For the third straight year, a Hudson Valley community is dealing with the loss of a high school senior.
On May 31, 2016, 18-year-old Daniel A. Dangerfield of Pleasant Valley was killed after his car left the road and hit a pole on Freedom Road in LaGrange.
The following year, on the same date, May 31, a Chevy Malibu driven by a 17-year-old Dillon F. Colon of Poughkeepsie hit a tree on Todd Hill Road.
Two days later, a passenger in the car, 17-year-old Ryan J. Mucci of Poughkeepsie, died from his injuries.
Weeks later, Colon succumbed to injuries he sustained in the rollover crash.
On June 4 2018, on the same road where Dangerfield died, Freedom Road in LaGrange, Jennifer Dickson of Pleasant Valley was killed when she lost control of a 2017 Honda Fit. Her car left the road and hit a utility pole.
All four were seniors at Arlington High School at the time of their fatal crashes.
