NORTH GREENBUSH, N.Y. — Authorities say a 64-year-old upstate New York man has been killed in a two-vehicle crash just four days after his son died in a house fire.
Police in suburban North Greenbush tell the Times Union of Albany that John Hover died at a hospital after his pickup truck veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle Thursday afternoon.
The other driver is in serious condition.
