WHITE CREEK -- A Hoosick Falls woman who was hurt in a Sunday night crash on Route 22 died from her injuries Monday, and investigators believe the driver of the vehicle she was in had been drinking, authorities said.
The woman, Robin Kessler, 30, was a passenger in a vehicle driven by her husband that collided with a utility trailer being towed by a pickup around 7 p.m., according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff's Deputy David Buxton said she suffered head and internal injuries and was taken to Albany Medical Center via Lifenet helicopter. She died Monday morning from massive trauma, sheriff's Investigator Bruce Hamilton said.
Buxton said Kessler's husband, Courtney Kessler, 35, was driving south near county Route 71 when the Ford sport-utility vehicle he was driving hit a utility trailer that was in the northbound lane.
Kessler's vehicle apparently veered into the northbound lane, and police said it was unclear why.
However, Hamilton said he had apparently been drinking alcohol at a football party at a friend's home and was on his way home.
No charges had been filed as of late Monday but the investigation was continuing.
Mr. Kessler was taken to Southwestern Vermont Medical Center with serious facial injuries. His condition was not available Monday.
The driver of the truck pulling the trailer, Richard Schneider III, 29, of Whiting, Vt., was not hurt.
Schneider told police he swerved into the southbound lane to avoid the Kessler vehicle because it was in the northbound lane, but the dual-axle trailer that was behind his truck remained in the northbound lane as he tried to avoid the oncoming vehicle.
Buxton said no tickets were issued as police investigate the crash further.
The highway was closed for about five hours as the Sheriff's Office accident reconstruction unit investigated the crash.
