December 1, 2012 will be a date that saddened a lot of people in the Albany area.

That’s when a very bad car accident claimed the life of 17-year-old Deanna Rivers, a senior at Shenendehowa High School. The vehicle that she was in was hit by a vehicle driven by 24-year-old Dennis Drue from Halfmoon.

Also from Shen. was Christopher Stewart whose life was cut short because of the accident. Matt Hardy and Bailey Wind, both students from Shaker High School, were severely injured in the accident.
