Motorcyclist killed after LaGrange crash

One person is dead after a crash involving a motorcycle Tuesday morning in the town of LaGrange.

The Dutchess County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened around 7:30 a.m. on Route 55 near Mandalay Drive.

Deputies believe a car heading westbound crossed over the center-line and hit the motorcycle, which was travelling in the opposite direction.

The car then swerved back into the Westbound lane and hit another car.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not been released at this time.

The driver of the first car was taken to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, and the other driver was not hurt.

No charges have been filed, and Dutchess County sheriff's investigators believe driver fatigue was a factor in the crash.
