SCHAGHTICOKE, N.Y. -- Two people are killed and one injured after a crash in Schaghticoke. It happened on Route 40 near Stewart's Friday night.

The road was closed, with troopers investigating and reconstructing the scene.

His two 20-year-old passengers, Kyle Dobert and his girlfriend, Alisha Schoonmaker, were pronounced dead at the scene.
