A one-year-old toddler and a Poughkeepsie woman died in a Wappingers Falls crash involving two vehicles on Monday, March 1.

According to the New York State Police, the fatal collision happened around 3:30 p.m. on Route 9 in the area of New Hackensack Road.

The first investigation found that forty-eight-year-old Loraine Baker from Poughkeepsie was operating her 2017 Honda CRV south on Route 9 when she crashed the back of a 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The woman was air-flown to Westchester Medical Center where she died of her injuries.

Thirty-seven-year-old Rene Luis Ramires from Poughkeepsie was operating the Trailblazer. Besides her in the car, there were three more passengers – twenty-three-year-old Nelvis Luis Cruz, four-year-old Esteban Luis Luis and one-year-old Emilion Luis Lis. They were all taken to MidHudson Regional Hospital with severe injuries.

The police confirmed that Emilio Luis Luis died of his injuries at the hospital.

Route 9 was closed in both ways for more than three hours after the Wappingers Falls crash. The police continue the investigation.

Rear-end collisions lead to severe injuries such as neck and back injuries, spine injuries, traumatic brain injuries.

If this has happened to you, you should consult with a car accident attorney. No matter how severe your injuries are, the insurance company of the liable driver won’t be so eager to offer a high settlement. This is why an attorney is needed; they will advise you not to accept the first offer. Negotiating for the settlement is a normal way to get to a settlement that works for you. You should be able to cover your medical bills, lost wages and damages. If the insurers won’t offer a reasonable settlement, your attorney may suggest taking the case to court.

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
