A 2004 Chevrolet Trail Blazer, being operated by 64-year-old Isabel Glastetter, of Glenmont, was traveling southbound on State Route 155. The vehicle struck the passenger side of Taheri’s car and pushed it into the guardrail on the western side of the roadway.

Glastetter suffered an injury to her ankle and was transported by Western Turnpike Rescue Squad to St. Peter’s Hospital.

Taheri suffered major traumatic injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this collision.
