Crash on I-84 in East Fishkill Leaves Connecticut Man Seriously Injured
A Connecticut man has suffered serious injuries as the result of a crash on I-84 in East Fishkill.
According to the New York State Police, 62-year-old Michael Gasper of Windsor was headed west on the highway Sunday (June 23), operating a 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle, when police say he lost control of the bike and fell onto the roadway.
Although the injuries he sustained are reportedly non-life-threatening, they were serious enough that Gasper was airlifted via helicopter and taken to Westchester Medical Center for treatment.
The New York Department of Transportation reports that as a result of the accident, the westbound lanes of I-84 near the exit 16 entrance to the Taconic State Parkway were closed on Sunday between 12:45 PM and 1:30 PM.
