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.

I really appreciated your determination and efforts on handling my case. You have done an outstanding job, and I am very satisfied with the outcome of the settlement. Thank you so so much John.
Thank you for your time, effort, and hard work on my case. I appreciate your expertise and compassion. I never experienced what I went through and I would have been completely lost without 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.
I can only say great things about my attorney Allan Silverstein. He is professional, he calls back right away, he keeps me informed, and makes me feel comfortable as this entire ordeal is stressful. I have total confidence in his ability to handle whatever comes his way. He is no nonsense and very good at his job. Thank you Allan... he is a true asset to the team!
