A police chase on the Northway ends in a deadly crash.
It started Thursday morning near Exit 19 northbound.
Troopers say they saw a vehicle going more than 90 miles per hour in a work zone.
They tried to stop Skyler Crouse, but he wouldn't pull over.
Police tried to use a spike strip to deflate the car's tires before Exit 25.
With one tire deflated, police say Crouse continued speeding, got off the exit and hit another vehicle on the ramp, killing the driver, Joe Turcotte.
He was a member of the Horicon Planning Board.
Crouse suffered non-life threatening injuries, was taken into custody and to a hospital.
Police say they'll release more details when they become available.
Skyler Crouse, 30, was arraigned in Warren County court. Police say he hit and killed a man after he was fleeing from police. He faces four charges, including manslaughter in the second degree. He has that thing on his head because he spit on our Camerman before. More on @WNYT pic.twitter.com/VJIFdRj6sN— Emily De Vito (@emilydevito) September 26, 2019
