WALTON, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a Hudson Valley man was driving with a suspended license when his vehicle collided with another on an upstate New York road, killing a New Jersey man and injuring the victim’s wife and 6-year-old son.

The Delaware County sheriff’s office tells The Daily Star of Oneonta (https://bit.ly/2m30UOO ) that a 41-year-old man from Hopewell Junction in Dutchess County was driving on Route 206 late Saturday afternoon when he crossed the center line and collided head-on with a vehicle in Walton.

Deputies say the driver of the other vehicle, 43-year-old Andrew Thompson, of Tenafly, New Jersey, died at the scene. Thompson’s 43-year-old wife was treated and released. Their son was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Deputies say the Hopewell Junction man faces charges for the crash.
