TIVOLI, N.Y. (AP) - The mayor of a Hudson Valley village says more needs to be done to improve the safety at a local intersection that was the scene of another fatal crash.

The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Brandon O'Connell died Monday after he pulled into the path of box truck at an intersection on Route 9G in Tivoli, 40 miles south of Albany.

Deputies say a 25-year-old man riding with O'Connell is in stable condition at Albany Medical Center and the driver of the truck was treated and released.

On Jan. 31, two Bard College students were killed while walking near the same intersection when a woman suspected of drunken driving hit them with her car.

Tivoli Mayor Bryan Cranna says some improvements have been made to the intersection but he’s asking state transportation officials to make it safer.
