A teenager has died after falling from a car in Hopewell Junction.
State Police say Wilson Santiago, 15 of Wappinger, was found in the roadway on Clove Branch Road near Henry Drive around 4:10 p.m. Wednesday after a patrol observed an SUV traveling with a teenager clinging to the passenger side. Upon turning around to catch the SUV, the patrol found Santiago in the roadway. The SUV fled the scene.
Two suspects were arrested later Wednesday — a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old. Both face second degree manslaughter charges; the 17-year-old was arraigned in East Fishkill Court and sent to Dutchess County Jail. The 16-year-old is scheduled to be arraigned this morning.
