WALLKILL, N.Y. (AP) - Police are blaming Monday’s storm for two fatal crashes in Orange County that were caused by the icy conditions.

The first accident occurred around 10:15 a.m. on Route 94 in the town of Chester. Town police tell the Times Herald-Record of Middletown that a 32-year-old man from the village of Florida lost control of his car on the ice-covered road and hit a utility pole. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The second crash occurred around 1 p.m. on county Route 11 in the town of Wallkill.

State police say two cars collided when one of the drivers lost control of his vehicle on the icy road. Troopers say a 22-year-old Middletown man riding in the car that slid out of control was pronounced dead at the scene.
