The snow showers we had yesterday contributed to the death of an Ulster County woman.
State Police say 74 year old Barbara Hyde of Highland lost control of her vehicle on a snow covered Route 28 in Shandaken and crossed into the opposite lane colliding with a Ulster County Regional Transit Bus. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Her passenger was transported to Mid-Hudson regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie in critical condition.
“State Police were assisted by the Ulster County Sheriff's Office, the Olive and Shandaken Police Departments and the Olive and Phoenicia Fire Departments.”
