Police searching for answers in head-on fatal wreck that entrapped trucker


Police are asking any witnesses of a recent fatal crash for help in determining exactly what happened. 

The fatal accident happened on Friday, March 26th at 10:38 a.m. in New Windsor, New York. 

According to the North Orange Daily Voice, a 2019 Subaru was heading south on Temple Hill Road when it suddenly crossed the yellow line and collided head on with an oncoming semi truck hauling a tanker trailer. 

The force of the impact killed the motorist, 58-year-old Robert Stack, and seriously damaged the cab of the truck, trapping 27-year-old trucker, Matthew Williams, inside of the rig. 

Luckily, the fire department was able to extricate Williams from the rig without much delay and he was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The tanker trailer was not seriously damaged in the wreck and no fuel was spilled. 

The trucker is expected to make a full recovery, but officers are still investigating the reason Stack crossed the yellow line. 

New Windsor Police Detectives ask that anyone who may have witnessed the accident call them at 845-565-7000.
