A New York man was killed in a car accident Monday in Patterson. The Putnam County Sheriff's Office reports that 56-year old Louis Arpi of Ossining died of injuries sustained in the crash. The accident happened on Route 22 near Thunder Ridge Road around 6:30am Monday. Arpi was headed northbound when a woman tried to pass a southbound tractor-trailer in a passing zone, but there wasn't enough time. The 47-year old struck Arpi's car head on. A passerby called 911 to report the crash. Damiana Mackoon of Patterson suffered minor injuries and was taken by ambulance to Danbury Hospital, where she was treated and released. The crash closed Route 22 to traffic for about three hours. No tickets were issued at the scene and the crash remains under investigation.
