The individual in this case did not just happen to crash into a CoARC van, reports state that the van was struck three times during the incident. For anyone wondering, CoARC stands for "Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care" so in essence they are a type of health care service.


When police arrived on the scene, they quickly attended to the injured man. Police applied a tourniquet to the mans injured leg and awaited medical personnel. The man was then airlifted from the scene and taken to Albany Medical Center.

Hudson Police Shooting Investigation

After police arrived on the scene and attended to the injured individual, the investigation into the entire incident began. The number one needing to be answered; where's the gun? Well police did eventually find the gun, reports state a detective on scene was able to recover the firearm from nearby sewer, a 9mm handgun. Guns or weapons of any kind don't just end up in a sewer, they have to be put there on purpose.


This brings us to the now as Hudson Police announced the arrest of the individual at the center of this event. The individual was identified as 31-year-old Stephen Pabon. Pabon was officially charged with...

Fran Drescher And Fellow Celebrities Will Sit On A Hudson Valley Museum Board

Fran Drescher is a celebrity that almost everyone likes. Known for her role as Fran Fine in The Nanny, the world couldn't help but laugh at her jokes, statements, and relatable interactions with other members of the show.

According to Yahoo News,

Fran Drescher isn't the only celebrity who will be in the Catskills.

"The museum’s list of advisory board members includes Fran Drescher, Harvey Fierstein, Judd Hirsch, Robert Klein and Richard Lewis — a fitting cast for a place where some of the nation’s top comedians got their start."

Have You Ever Heard Of The Borscht Belt?

"For generations of Jews in the New York metropolitan area, there was no doubt about the location of those “mountains.” Less than 100 miles from the cramped, sweltering tenements of Manhattan’s Lower East Side was a lush patchwork of forests, farms and bustling rural towns that hosted a summertime population of nearly a million urban strivers hungry for the clean air, fresh food and familiar camaraderie that even a garment worker or cab driver could afford."

Spending the summer in the Catskills sounds ideal.

"From the turn of the 20th century to the 1970s, more than 1,000 hotels, bungalow colonies, summer camps and boarding houses dotted the Catskill Mountains of southern New York. At first they came by train, and later, by bus and car along The Quickway, now known as Route 17."

Some may know this area or region to be called Solomon County, Jewish Alps or The Mountains. The Borscht Belt was also another term that most people remember the most.
