Fiery motorcycle crash in Kingston leaves one dead, two injured

A motorcycle accident in East Kingston killed one person and injured two others early Monday morning. Today, the Kingston Police Department released the name of the victim who was killed: 30-year-old Brian Ferrari of Lake Katrine.

Nicholas Saveskie, 27, and Kimberly Dougherty, 28, were taken to Westchester Medical Center after the crash, where both remained today. Dougherty, who was a passenger on one of the motorcycles, is currently listed in critical condition.

The accident was described as horrifying and fiery, according to eyewitness accounts in The Daily Freeman.

Kingston Fire Chief John Reinhardt said his company responded to a call near 1 a.m. on Monday of motorcycles and people “engulfed in flames,” the Freeman reported.

William A. Tubby, who lives close to where the accident occurred at the intersection of First Ave and Kingston Street, told the Daily Freeman he saw flames shooting 6 to 8 feet into the air.

“When I rushed out there was a girl who was on fire,” he said. “I went over there and tried to put the flames out, but I couldn’t put them out with my hands.”

Saveskie, an East Kingston resident, faces multiple vehicle and traffic charges and faces a potential criminal charge as well, according to the Kingston Police press release. Police are still investigating the accident.
