Guilty plea in crash that killed New City couple



NEW CITY – A Nanuet man pled guilty in Rockland County Court to aggravated vehicular homicide in the death of a man and his wife.
On the afternoon of June 4, Matthew Sindone, 24, was recklessly driving an SUV that ran a red light and hit a sedan at the intersection of Route 304 and Goebel Road in New City.   
Neil Block and his wife, Aline, died at the scene.
Sindone suffered cuts to his head and was taken to Nyack Hospital where Clarkstown Police officers recovered Xanax from his pocket.  He admitted to using Xanax and Klonopin in the hours before the fatal crash and an analysis of his blood revealed a large amount of Xanax in his blood at the time of the crash.
When sentenced in January 2018, Sindone faces up to four to 12 years in state prison.
