LA GRANGE, N.Y. — Authorities say a one-car crash on a Hudson Valley road two weeks ago has claimed the life of a second senior at a local high school.

The Poughkeepsie Journal reports (http://pojonews.co/2rvFM2Q ) that the principal of Arlington High School says 17-year-old Dillon Colon, of La Grange, died Monday from injuries he suffered in a rollover crash in the Dutchess County town of La Grange on May 31.

State police say a fellow Arlington senior from La Grange who was riding in the car, 17-year-old Ryan Mucci, died the next day.

Troopers say Colon was driving when he went off the road and crashed into a tree.

Both teens died at MidHudson Regional Hospital.

Police say the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
