State police urge motorists to slow down after crash kills Ossining woman
State police are urging motorists to drive slowly during Columbus Day weekend after an Ossining woman was killed in a crash last week.
Karin Bahner, 33, of Ossining, was killed when a motorist speeding on Highway 684 struck her car head-on. Police say in 2004 there were nine fatal accidents on 684 and this year there have been five. They attribute the lower number to increased patrols.
Authorities say with the thousands of people traveling for the holiday weekend, they want to be even more prepared. They are checking for motorists who drive aggressively and exhibit road rage.
