MONTGOMER, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a 35-year-old Hudson Valley man has been charged after he caused a chain-reaction crash that killed a motorist and injured five people on a commuter bus.

Police in the Orange County town of Montgomery tell the Times Herald-Record of Middletown ( ) that a vehicle driven by Thomas Grabrynowicz (grab-ruh-NOH'-witz) of the city of Newburgh rear-ended a car that was slowing down to make a turn on Route 17K around 8 p.m. Wednesday.

The car then collided with a Coach USA commuter bus. Police say the driver of the car, 53-year-old Robert Cruver of Montgomery, was pronounced dead at a hospital. The five injured on the bus were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Grabrynowicz was charged with criminally negligent homicide, vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated by drugs. It couldn't be determined if he had a lawyer.
