2nd victim in Tuesday's Deerpark crash dies

As friends and family of 17-year-old Daniel Garcia gathered in Port Jervis today to say their final goodbyes after he was killed in a crash in Deerpark, the other victim, 16-year-old Christian Thomas, succumbed to his injuries.

Police say Thomas was driving with Garcia on the Greenville Turnpike Tuesday when their car collided with an SUV going the other direction.

Investigators believe the accident was caused by speeding and a lack of experience by the driver. They are also looking into the possibility that Thomas was racing his car.

The driver of the SUV, 59-year-old Joanne Daly from Westtown, is expected to recover.
