Police: Man dies after car is hit by 2 intoxicated drivers

EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. (AP) - New York State Police say a man has died after his car was hit by two intoxicated drivers traveling in opposite directions on an Albany-area highway.

The vehicle was struck and went across a median on Interstate 90 in East Greenbush at around 1 p.m. on Saturday. Then it was hit by a westbound vehicle.

The victim's name hasn't been released.

Troopers say the eastbound driver, 23-year-old August Rice of Rexford, and the westbound driver, 41-year-old Rex Tucker-Moss of Poughquag, both face charges including vehicular manslaughter.

Police also say Tucker-Moss is charged with aggravated DWI because he had two children, ages 10 and 7, in his car.

Both men were released from the Rensselaer County Jail after posting bail. The lawyers representing each man weren't immediately available for comment Monday.
