A Parsippany mother was killed and her 12-year-old daughter was seriously injured in a head-on accident in upstate New York on Sunday.
Kim Lynn, 41, was killed after her 2009 Honda Odyssey, which was also carrying her three daughters, was struck by a 2003 Jeep Liberty on Route 9 West in Ulster County Sunday morning at about 6 a.m., Marlborough, N.Y. Police Chief Gerald Cocozza said.
Lynn was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, Cocozza said.
Her girls also sustained injuries in the incident, as did the driver of the other vehicle involved, Cocozza said.
According to the chief, Lynn's 12-year-old daughter had to be extricated from the vehicle. She underwent surgery at Westchester Medical Center Tuesday after breaking her arm, hip and both legs, Cocozza said.
Her condition was not known as of Tuesday afternoon.
The other two girls, 8-year-old twins, suffered minor injuries and were treated at St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie, Cocozza said.
The driver of the other vehicle, Alexander Rigo-Mendez, 21, of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., was taken to St. Francis with non-life-threatening injuries, Cocozza said.
The chief said Lynn, Rigo-Mendez and the girls were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
Police are investigating what caused Rigo-Mendez, who was travelling northbound on Route 9W, to cross into the southbound lanes.
Cocozza said that no charges have been filed. Police are still investigating the crash and have not yet determined whether alcohol or speed was a factor, Cocozza said.
