I have been folling this story as I was in Redhook,NY on that tragic day and seen this car speeding out of control through The Town of Redhook and miniutes later heard of a tragic crash. I have read in the poughkeepsie journal that they have done an Autopsy and are awaiting further toxicolgy results but I have not read or heard anything of Interviews from Family or neighbors of the deceased woman. I'm sure someone that knew this person could shed some light on what happen that tragic day. My thoughts go out to the family may GOD help them through these hard days ahead.

Big E,

You're 100% right. I am the driver of the car's cousin and the family knows basically only what it is written in the newspaper and what we have gathered from the police which at times have been contradictory. The funeral was yesterday and now maybe we can investigate this whole thing. If anyone, can shed any light on this, please post.

I only know what I posted before, but I hope someone has looked into the possibility of a malfunctioning car. Something was dragging from the car and scraping the road as the car sped down Rt. 9. The scrapes were visible on 9 from at least as far up as Cornucopia in upper Red Hook--we could see the path of the car all the way down 9 until the car stopped.
I read that there was an accident in Red Hook prior to the car's stopping in Rhinebeck. I wonder where that accident was. If it was in the village or anywhere south of where the marks in the road begin, then the car must have been malfunctioning before the first accident.
We left our name and number for the investigating police officer, but have not received a call.
If there is anything else we can tell you about what we saw, please don't hesitate to ask us.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with you.

maybe you could talk to the family about what you witnessed as there has been no word on what might have been wrong with the car.Perhaps you could leave an e-mail address for her cousin who posted as 10powers10.
