THOMPSON, N.Y. (AP) — Two teenagers have died after being struck by a car as they walked along a road in Sullivan County.
State police identify the boys killed in Sunday’s accident as 14-year-old Justin Finkel and 16-year-old Devin Zeininger, both of Rock Hill. They were struck around 3:15 p.m. as they walked along Glen Wild Road in the town of Thompson.
The driver was identified as 86-year-old Isaac Kantrowitz of Woodridge. Police say there’s no indication Kantrowitz was impaired at the time of the crash. The investigation is continuing.
The Monticello schools superintendent posted a message on the district website saying grief counselors will be available at the high school and middle school.
Kantrowitz is a retired Fallsburg town justice and a Woodridge village trustee.
