Last night in Rotterdam there was an absolutely awful accident that has taken a total of three lives.
From WGY: Police say Stephen Cipriano, 28, of Rotterdam was headed west on 88 just after 7:30 last night when his car crossed the median and slammed head-on into a car driven by Timothy Batchler, 45, of Schenectady. His wife, Stephanie, 44, was in the front seat. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
The Batchler's three children, ages 19, 11, and 11 were in the backseat and rushed to the hospital. Thankfully with non-life threatening injuries.
A GoFundMe page was set up just four hours ago with a goal of $10,000 to help these kids. As of right now they have surpassed that and have raised $12,220!
