COXSACKIE — Authorities say a Coxsackie man driving the wrong way on the Thruway crashed into a minivan, killing himself and a Canadian 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, 15 miles 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, Ontario.

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

Police say Weller and her 4-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.
