On Wednesday afternoon in the Town of Patterson, a woman was killed in
a head-on crash on Route 22.
According to police, the accident occurred at about 3:55 p.m. just north
of State Route 311 when a 2003 GMC pickup truck, driven by Christopher
C. Osborne, Jr., 42, of Pawling crossed the double yellow line into oncoming
traffic while traveling north on State Route 22. Osborne's pickup
then crashed head-on into a 2015 Subaru Forester, driven by Mario L. Riccobon,
65, of Carmel, who was traveling south.
Mario Riccobon's passenger, Jean Riccobon, 63, also of Carmel, was
pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
Mario Riccobon was taken to Danbury Hospital to be treated for injuries
that appeared to be nonlife-threatening.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation and a portion of Route
22 was closed while New York State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit
reconstructed the crash.
Mainetti, Mainetti & O'Connor would like to extend our deepest
condolances to the friends and family of the Riccobons.
