Cottekill man indicted for manslaughter in fatal crash


KINGSTON – The Ulster County grand jury 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.
“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,” said District Attorney Holley Carnright.  “The driver of the other vehicle was killed and his son, who was in the vehicle, was injured.”
