Nanuet man sentenced on vehicular homicide plea


NEW CITY – A Nanuet man was sentenced in Rockland County Court on Wednesday to four to 12 years in state prison on his guilty plea to one count of aggravated vehicular homicide related to the deaths of a New City couple.

On June 4, 2017, Matthew Sindone, was driving an SUV recklessly when it collided with a car after running through a red light at the intersection of Route 304 and Goebel Road in New City.

Neil Block and his wife, Aline Block, were killed in the crash.

Sindone was taken to Nyack Hospital for treatment of cuts to his head and that is where Clarkstown Police officers recovered Xanax from his pocket.

Sindone admitted to using Xanax and Klonopin in the hours before the crash. An analysis of his blood revealed 1,500 ng/mL of Xanax, a very high amount indicative of the level of his impairment at the time.
