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.

Tucker was taken to Upstate University Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Deputies say Frost admitted to using drugs before the crash, and there was some evidence of distracted driving.

Frost consented to providing a sample of her blood for further analysis. The results are still pending.

The investigation is ongoing, but based on current evidence, Frost was charged with second-degree vehicular manslaughter, driving while ability impaired by drugs, driving with a suspended license and failure to keep right.

Frost is being held at the Madison County jail on $10,000 cash bail, $20,000 bail bond or $40,000 partially secured bond.

She is scheduled to appear in Town of Sullivan Court on Tuesday, April 13.
