Shawangunk, NY (November 5, 2019) – Authorities have provided the identities of those who were involved in a tragically fatal collision that took place on Monday, November 4th. The accident occurred at approximately 9:30 a.m. along Albany Post Road in the town of Shawangunk.
According to officials, Joseph J. Hull, 49, was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, an Ulster County Department of Public Works vehicle, southbound when he slowed down to back his vehicle into a driveway. The Chevy Silverado was then hit by a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee being driven by 34-year-old Kevin Kazmar, of Pine Bush. The impact sent the Silverado into the northbound lane where it was struck by another Ulster County Department of Public Works vehicle.
Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene and Kazmar was tragically pronounced deceased. Both Hull and the operator of the other Public Works vehicle, identified as Andrew A. Basel, 52, were transported to Orange Regional Hospital with at least minor injuries.
