BRIDGEPORT, N.Y. (UPDATED) – A Taberg woman has been charged with vehicular manslaughter, after a man was killed in a crash on Route 31 in Bridgeport Thursday afternoon.
According to Madison County Sheriff’s Office, 27-year-old Caitlin R. Frost was driving near Blanding Hardware around 3 p.m. when she veered into the eastbound lane, hitting a motorcycle driven by 43-year-old Christopher J. Tucker, of Oneida.
