I'm looking online and can't find any news about the big accident on Route 55 this morning in LaGrange. I had to take a detour because the Route 55 / Route 82 intersection was closed, with at least two large wrecked vehicles in the middle of the intersection. My detour took me to the intersection of Skidmore and Route 55, about a half mile away, and there were two more totaled vehicles there. There were more officers and EMTs on the scene(s) than I even knew existed in Dutchess County. What happened????

LaGrange man hurt in Route 55 crash
FREEDOM PLAINS — A LaGrange man was seriously hurt early Monday morning when his car was hit as he tried to make a left turn off Route 55, state police in Wappinger said.
Vincent Dambrosio, 74, was heading west on Route 55 when he tried to turn left onto Velie Road. Police said Dambrosio failed to yield to oncoming traffic and was hit by a Jeep, which overturned and hit an Arlington school bus with one student on board.
Neither the student nor the bus driver was hurt. The bus had been at a stop sign at Velie Road when the 7 a.m. accident happened.
Dambrosio, his two passengers and the driver of the Jeep were taken to Saint Francis Hospital. Dambrosio was in critical condition Monday night; the other three victims were treated for minor injuries.
