Ulster Park, NY (October 6, 2018) – Police have concluded their investigation into a fatal bicycle crash that took place in Ulster Park. The accident led to the death of a Hudson Valley man, who was been identified as Justin Boyd of Port Ewen.
The Ulster County Sheriff’s Office investigated the accident on Route 9W to find that Boyd had been struck by somebody driving a white 2013 Ford F-150. That driver was soon identified as 33-year-old Michael Brailey.
Police were not sure why Brailey left the road and struck the bicyclist. Upon further investigation, they found that alcohol, drugs, and cellphone distraction were not factors in the accident, however. It was concluded that Brailey became drowsy and drifted off the roadway.
He received charges of speed in excess and moving from a lane of traffic unsafely.
