Man charged with deadly Warren County crash admitted to Albany Med

October 02, 2019 01:59 PM

The man accused of driving more than 100 miles per hour on the Northway and crashing into and killing an innocent driver was being treated at Albany Med Wednesday morning.

Skyler Crouse was supposed to be arraigned on manslaughter and 11 other charges in connection with the death last Thursday of Joseph Turcotte.


However, police say Crouse has been admitted to Albany Med to treat an infection.

Investigators say Crouse fled the scene of the fatal crash on foot and was tracked down and bitten by a police dog.

His arraignment on the 12 count indictment has not been rescheduled.

Calling hours were scheduled for Wednesday for Turcotte, who was a member of the Horicon Planning Board and a well-respected Brant Lake businessman.
