Cottekill man indicted on manslaughter charge in fatal crash


KINGSTON – The Ulster County grand jury has indicted a Cottekill
man on several counts including manslaughter in connection with a fatal
accident last September.

Tyler Grable, 22, of Romney Way was also charged with four counts of vehicular
manslaughter and four counts of vehicular assault in connection with the
two-car crash at the intersection of Cottekill Road and Lucas Avenue in
the Town of Rosendale on September 26, 2014 in which the driver of the
other vehicle, Kelly Utter, 50, also of Cottekill, was killed, said District
Attorney Holley Carnright.

“The allegations are that at a time when he had been drinking and
smoking marijuana, Mr. Grable sped through the stop sign at that intersection
and collided with another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle was
killed and his son, who was in the vehicle, was injured,” the DA

Grable was driving a 1994 Subaru sedan, which collided with a 2006 Jeep
