1 teen killed, driver charged with DWI after Nassau crash
Alicia Hubbard, 18, of Nassau, was pronounced dead after the crash
NASSAU, N.Y. – State Police are investigating a drunken car crash that happened early Saturday morning in Nassau, killing an 18-year-old female.
Around 2 a.m. Saturday the vehicle, a 2001 Isuzu, driven by 20-year-old Marian Hubbard, of West Sand Lake, was eastbound on Route 20 in Nassau when the vehicle crossed into the westbound lane, struck a guide rail on the north shoulder of the roadway, and overturned down an embankment.
Police say 18-year-old Alicia Hubbard, of Nassau, was pronounced dead after the crash. She was sitting in the back seat and was ejected from the car.
The driver and the front seat passenger, 19-year-old Nicole Hubbard, of West Sand Lake, were also ejected from the car.
Marian Hubbard, was arrested for driving while intoxicated and transported to Albany Medical Center where she is listed in serious condition. Marian and Alicia Hubbard were not wearing seatbelts.
Nicole Hubbard was treated and released after the accident.
Friends tell NEWS10 the three young women were all cousins.
The Albany Times Union reports that Alicia's sister, Jessica Romey, died at age 22 in 2009, and Romey's father died in a car accident in 2011.
Just hours after the crash Saturday, friends helped Danielle Borey climb over the guide rail and walk down the embankment where the crash happened. Borey was overwhelmed with sorrow as she placed flowers at the scene and said her goodbyes to her best friend. The group also lit candles in Hubbards memory as they painfully looked over the scene of the crash that took her life.
The investigation into this crash is ongoing and any person with information regarding this investigation is asked to call the New York State Police in Schodack at (518) 732-4644.
State Police are calling this incident a criminal investigation, and say there is weeks of investigating ahead of them.
Lt. Bob Poisson, of State Police, tells NEWS10 they were able to gain enough information at the crash scene to charge Marian. "We secured a lot of evidence at the scene as well as our interview of the operator on the scene, and those factors combined with the accident resulted in us arresting her for driving while intoxicated," he said.
State police would not comment on where the women were coming from or going.
"Our continuing investigation is looking into those
factors and we'll be conducting additional interviews to determine where they
were coming from, where they were going," said Poisson.
