A fatal accident happened on Thursday, April 8, along Route 31 in Bridgeport. Now the Madison County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the reasons for the Bridgeport motorcycle accident that claimed the life of a forty-three-year-old motorcyclist.
Twenty-seven-year-old Catlin Frost from Taberg, New York, was operating a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier and crossed into the eastbound lane of Route 31, crashing with a 1988 Yamaha VMAX motorcycle.
The motorcyclist, Christopher Tucker from Oneida, got medical help at the scene and was taken to Upstate Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
A drug recognition expert evaluated Frost and she agreed to give a blood sample. The woman admitted to using drugs before the accident; the blood test results are pending. According to the police, there was an indication that Frost was distracted while driving, which led to the Bridgeport motorcycle accident.
Frost is charged with vehicular manslaughter in the second degree, driving with a suspended license, failure to keep right and driving while ability impaired by drugs.
She was arraigned and remanded to the Madison County Jail on $10,000 cash bail, $20,000 bail bond, or $40,000 partially secured bond. Madison is set to appear before the Town of Sullivan Court on April 13 in regard to her charges.
Motorcycle accidents often end in fatalities because of the size of these vehicles and the lack of protection. It doesn’t take a huge impact for the motorcyclist to end with severe injuries.

Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.
Cellino Law is an amazing firm with a great team. I worked with Greg Pajak and his assistant, Tracey Falconer. I cannot express enough how dedicated they are. The personal attention I received was excellent; they were always available to help with questions and concerns and put me at ease in the unknown territory I found myself in. I highly recommend them to anyone needing representation. A huge thank you to them for all they accomplished for me!
Now that reality has set in, I want to thank you for all your work and assistance in obtaining my settlement for the pelvic mesh. This money will make my life so much easier in the future. Medicare just isn't sufficient. I know that I will have enough to live on. I truly appreciate of your efforts. Thank you!
I really just wanted to say thank you so much for taking my case, answering all my questions, and mostly for being very patient with me. I feel that without you and Roza I would not have been able to get anything at all. I hope to never need a lawyer again, but if I do I will definitely want you both working for me. Again thank your for you hard work, time and patience.
Joe and I just wanted to send you this note thanking you for the professional way you handled our lawsuit. Your kindness was extremely appreciated in a very difficult time. When we found out the people that caused the accident had no insurance, we thought our chances of receiving any settlement was nonexistent. Once we met with you and released you were able to help us our minds were put at ease. Your aggressive manner of handling the case exceeded our expectations. Please feel free to use us as a reference. Thank you so much and best wishes,
Danielle and Joe
Cellino Law and more specifically my attorney, Gregory V. Pajak, Managing Attorney, and as a whole the Cellino Law Firm and its organization. This is by far one of the most professional law firms and attorney I have ever engaged with and retained in my 35 years. The level of professionalism goes beyond words, the care and constant engagement with me as the client was touching. I was never ever just treated as simply a CASE with potentially a significant dollar number attached to my file. I was engaged regularly, Tracey (Ass’t) and Greg always made sure to remain constant, as well as consistent in overseeing that my case was handled properly and that it did matter in many ways - ensuring that the end result(s) would be fair and reasonable to my case/injury. The regular follow-up calls were very satisfying, knowing that you’re involved in your case matters significantly AND always. One of my main items to recognize Cellino Law and Gregory is that whenever I called, I was able to get through to speak directly to my Lawyer and he would answer any if not all of my questions in a very professional and genuinely caring manner. I always felt cared for and protected legally and more importantly, I was made feel as a human being that was being cared for and always keeping me abreast of all matters connected to the case. There was never a point I felt let down, on the contrary -the level of service was “STELLAR”. Greg is the consummate professional, a ‘role model’, if you will, for what other attorneys should strive to become when dealing with their clients.
