Massachusetts man and child killed in icy road crash

BEDFORD – Icy road conditions are believed to be the cause of a six-vehicle pile-up that resulted in the deaths of a Lee, Massachusetts man and a three-year-old boy.

State Police said a box truck driven by Henry Valencia, 59, of the Bronx on Interstate 684 in Bedford at around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 30, was unable to sop because of icy road conditions and struck another vehicle that was stopped in traffic.

The driver of that car, Kerry Hamill, 40, of Massachusetts, and a three-year-old passenger, were both killed. Hamill’s wife, Lauren Pellegrino, 40, was transported to Westchester Medical Center with minor injuries, police said.
