BALLSTON SPA - Statements Dennis Drue made to the police the night of a crash that killed two Shenendehowa High School seniors can now be used against him at trial. That's the ruling Tuesday from Saratoga County Judge Jerry Scarano.
The judge found that New York State Police properly advised Drue of his Miranda rights and that his statements were voluntary. He also found other statements Drue made were said without provocation from police.
Drue is accused of causing the Dec. 1 crash that killed Chris Stewart and Deanna Rivers. Two other students were seriously hurt.
