Stoney Creek woman killed, 4-month-old baby in serious condition after crash in N.Y.

A man from New York state also died in the collision.

U.S. authorities say an upstate New York man driving the wrong way on the Thruway crashed into a minivan, killing himself and an Ontario woman in the other vehicle.

State police say the crash happened around 1 a.m. Friday in the southbound lanes of Interstate 87 in the Greene County town of New Baltimore, about 25 kilometres south of Albany.

Troopers say 43-year-old Julian With of Coxsackie was driving north in the southbound lanes when he collided head-on with a minivan driven by 39-year-old Karen Weller of Hamilton.

With and 50-year-old Carol Dion of Stony Creek, Ont., were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Weller and her four-month-old baby, Tajaye, were taken to Albany Medical Center.

A hospital spokeswoman says the baby is in serious condition, but no information was available for Weller.
