Here are some stories making headlines across the Hudson Valley.
A Yorktown man is facing several charges after a deadly drunk driving crash last December. Mark Cope is accused of driving the wrong way on Route 9 in Peekskill and slamming head-on into another car. The driver of that vehicle, 32-year-old Shina McClam of Ossining, was killed. Cope is facing vehicular homicide and manslaughter charges.
Officials in Tuxedo say a digital highway sign was hacked. Instead of notifying drivers about construction ahead, they say someone changed the message to "abolish the police, happy birthday!"  Authorities say the sign was turned off shortly after it was reported Saturday night and that the incident is under investigation.
