Two suffered catastrophic injuries after their driver crashed their car in the Hudson Valley while allegedly driving recklessly and intoxicated.
On Thursday, John Tyler Kuhn was arraigned in Ulster County Court on an indictment charging him with aggravated vehicular assault, two counts of assault, and two counts of driving while intoxicated.
