DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Two teens were seriously injured in a one-car crash that occurred on Feller Newmark Road near Route 9 in Red Hook at about 10 p.m. on Tuesday.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that a 2004 Nissan 350Z being operated by Erik Johnson, 17, of Red Hook, with Liam O’Farrell, 18, of Red Hook as a passenger was traveling eastbound on Feller Newmark Road, approximately a quarter mile east of Route 9, when Johnson lost control while passing another vehicle, according to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office.

The Nissan then left the roadway and struck a tree on the southern shoulder, according to the sheriff's office reports.

Both Johnson and O'Farrell suffered life-threatening injuries and were transported to hospitals for treatment. Johnson was airlifted to Albany Medical Center and O’Farrell was driven by ambulance to Mid-Hudson Regional.

Both were wearing seatbelts, and at this time the primary factor appears to be unsafe speed, the sheriff's office said.

The Sheriff’s Office Crash Investigation Unit responded to the scene and is continuing to investigate the cause or causes of the crash.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Red Hook Fire Department and Northern Dutchess Paramedics.
