Trial of accused drug impaired driver who killed veteran continues

PUCKHKEEPSIE Before Dutchess County Court Judge Jessica Segal on Wednesday, the woman accused of killing a well-known war veteran while high on drugs and driving carelessly proceeded with her case.

Camay Price, 35, of Poughkeepsie is awaiting trial for her involvement in the Pleasant Valley tragedy that killed Navy veteran Erin Doc Clancy on September 7, 2022, as well as for driving while under the influence of drugs. The Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office is leading the prosecution in this trial, which got underway on Monday.

Police testimonies state that on the morning of the accident, Pryce was driving east on Pleasant Valley’s Route 44 when her Nissan Murano struck Clancy, who was attempting to escape the collision based on the evidence. Pryce was in the midst of illegally passing two vehicles.

On Wednesday, a New York State Police Accident investigator provided expert testimony, stating that Clancy’s swerving was ineffective and that Pryce struck his minivan head-on. Clancy was pinned in the passenger compartment of his car after it suffered severe damage from the collision, and he was subsequently declared dead at the spot. Before pictures of Clancy’s lifeless body in the car at the site and later that day at the Dutchess County Medical Examiner’s Office were shown to the jury, Clancy’s family members fled the courtroom.

On Wednesday, Ryanne Konan, Pryce’s lawyer, made a failed attempt to confuse the certified accident investigator by questioning the state police investigator.

A Dutchess County Grand Jury indicted Pryce on April 6, 2023, and on April 14, 2023, a warrant for her arrest was issued.

Pryce was found at an undisclosed residence in the City of Poughkeepsie five days later with the help of the Poughkeepsie Police, and state troopers took him into custody. Judge Edward McLoughlin of the Dutchess County Court arraigned Pryce following processing and remanded her to the Dutchess County Jail on a $500,000 cash bail, $1 million bond, or $2 million partially-secured bond. Since her arraignment, Pryce has stayed detained in the county jail.
