UPDATED. There was a Short Line Coach bus accident in Tuxedo Friday morning, February 10, that involved injuries and one fatality, according to a MidHudsonNews.com report.

A Short Line Coach bus and small car collided in Route 17 near Stevens Lane, north of Tuxedo’s main commercial district. The driver of the vehicle was trapped in the crushed car, which got t-boned by the bus, and emergency responders worked to extricate heavy equipment the severely injured driver — who died at the site of the accident. Five other passengers from the Short Line bus were transported to Good Samaritan for minor injuries.

According to a Times Herald Record report by Heather Yakin, Tyrone Jackson’s lost control of his car on a stretch icy road just south of Duck Cedar Plaza on Route 17 and slid into the oncoming, southbound Coach bus. Road conditions were reportedly the instigating factor in the accident.

Northbound traffic lanes reportedly still had patches of ice from Thursday’s snowstorm and the Friday morning chill. The cause of the accident is still under investigation by Tuxedo Police and NY State Police.

Route 17 through the Sloatsburg/Tuxedo corridor is notorious for speeding traffic, especially larger commercial vehicles such as buses and trucks.

MidHudson News also reported that a total of 13 people “reported injured and taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern.”

    Not surprised, all the way up to 87 these drivers jockey for position just to cut you off. Sad but not surprised. Need much more traffic enforcement around commuter times.
