ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Meteorologist Jill Szwed said this morning that April snowstorms, like the one we saw in the Capital Region early this week, are good for one thing- they don’t last long. Widespread melting is set to occur today, a welcomed sign for area residents who still haven’t had their power restored since the wintry weather event. Today’s five things to know include a fatal ATV crash in Vermont, the latest in an ongoing murder investigation in New Scotland, and the untimely death of a Poughkeepsie man after a shooting earlier in the week.
1. Pownal man dies after fatal ATV accident
Troopers from the Vermont State Police responded to the area of Washing Brook Road in Pownal for an ATV crash on April 19, around 9:17 p.m. The driver, who has since been identified as 27-year-old Justin Cameron of Pownal, appeared to have lost control of the ATV, leaving the roadway and rolling down an embankment into a tree. Cameron was pronounced dead at the scene.
