On March 26, 2021 at 10:38 p.m., the New Windsor Police Department responded to a serious motor vehicle accident with occupant entrapment on Temple Hill Road, just south of the entrance to Continental Manor Condominiums. Upon arrival of police officers, they determined the accident was a head-on collision involving a semi-trailer truck and a passenger car.

The passenger car involved was a 2019 Subaru and it was heading southbound. It was operated by Robert C. Stack, 58 years old of New Windsor. Mr. Stack was pronounced dead at the scene. He was the sole occupant in the vehicle.

The semi-trailer truck involved was a 2021 Volvo and it was heading northbound. The trailer that was being towed behind the semi-trailer truck was a gasoline tanker full of fuel but no fuel was lost from the tanker as a result of the accident. This vehicle was operated by Matthew C. Williams, 27 years old of Berlin, NY. Mr. Williams was extricated from the cab of the truck by Vails Gate Fire Department personnel. He was then transported to Montefiore St. Luke’s Hospital in Newburgh by New Windsor Emergency Medical Services ambulance. Mr. Williams sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Mr. Williams was the sole occupant of this vehicle. 

The New Windsor Police Department’s accident reconstruction team responded to the scene to investigate the accident. Their preliminary investigation determined that the 2019 Subaru crossed over the double yellow line and into the oncoming path of the semi-trailer truck just prior to the collision. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
