Two hospitalized, one ticketed in Sawkill Road crash
TOWN OF ULSTER, N.Y. — Two men were injured Sunday evening in an accident on Sawkill Road, state police said.
State police at Ulster said James Graves, 34, of Hurley, failed to yield the right of way when he made a left turn out of the Internal Revenue Service parking lot on Sawkill Road at about 5:20 p.m. Police said Graves, who was driving a 1997 Nissan, pulled into the path of a southbound 2002 Cadillac being driven by James Longendyke, 72, of Kingston.
Police said both men and a passenger in Longendyke’s car became trapped after the collision and had to be freed by members of the Ulster Hose Fire Co.
Graves and Longendyke, as well as Longendyke’s passenger, were taken to Albany Medical Center; Graves was admitted to the hospital’s intensive care unit with fractures to both of his legs, police said.
Both Graves and Longendyke were listed in critical, but stable, condition, police said Monday.
Graves was ticketed for the infraction of failure to yield the right of way. Police said Graves also had a legally owned, licensed handgun in his vehicle that was secured at the trooper barracks for safe-keeping.
State police were assisted by Ulster town police and Ulster County sheriff’s deputies.
