Adam Roach, 32, of LaGrange, was transported to St. Francis Hospital in the Town of Poughkeepsie after his 2003 Pontiac Vibe was t-boned at the intersection of Rossway Road and the Taconic State Parkway.

At about 7:25 a.m., police said Roach entered the Taconic State Parkway from Rossway Road and was hit by a southbound 2009 Mercedes driven by Michael Delahanty, a Stanfordville resident.

The Mercedes went on to hit another vehicle before coming to a stop.

Police said Delahanty suffered chest injuries that aren’t believed to be life threatening. The driver of the third vehicle was uninjured.

Roach had two children, ages two and three, in his car at the time of the crash. Both children were uninjured, according to police.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

Wow, that's a crash. I assume the kids were in the back seat and glad to hear they were uninjured. Hope Mr. Grange recovers.

Cars really are safer today than they've ever been. Even the compacts.

I wonder if the force of impact threw that door off its hinges or if it was the jaws of life.

The jaws, I bet.

This is actually reassuring to see. He was injured, but it looks like the cabin area hardly buckled and the kids weren't hurt at all. Hope he comes through okay.

Is it me, or does the initial impact look like the front quarter?

That might explain the rear quarter damage behind the wheel-- the car spun around the point of impact and hit the Mercedes going by.

Unfortunately, I experienced something similar from that Vibe's perspective many years ago. Since then, I hope to do my spinning at the fairgrounds, thanks!

Good to hear everyone is *mostly* okay.

Though I was expecting something more like this at first:
