Spring Valley man due back in court today for fatal Woodbury crash
A Spring Valley man is due back in court today in connection to a fatal crash in Woodbury.
Prosecutors say 24-year-old Chaim Gordon was speeding on Aug. 15, 2022 and traveling with a caravan of cars carrying New Square Grand Rabbi David Twersky when he lost control of his SUV on Route 6 and killed another driver, 62-year-old Iksong Jin, from Monticello, in a head-on crash.
State police say Gordon was issued five tickets in August for reckless driving.
Gordon is expected to take a plea deal in Woodbury Town Court carrying a $1,000 fine and up to 10 points on his license for the death that his attorney described as a tragic accident.
