WARRENSBURG - Two foreign workers at Camp Echo Lake were killed near midnight Thursday night when a drunk driver careened off Hudson St. and stuck them, police said.
The driver, Peter B. Goldblatt, 39, of Indian Lake, was charged with Aggravated Vehicular Homicide, a Felony, plus a Misdemeanor count of Driving while Intoxicated.
The victims in the incident were Dominic Hartley, 21, of England and Emily Lewis, 21, of Scotland, police said. Hartley was pronounced dead at the scene while Lewis died a while later after being taken to Glens Falls Hospital, then transferred to Albany Medical Center, authorities said.
Gold was arraigned Friday morning in front of Town Justice Richard Nissen and sent to Warren County Jail for lack of $500,000 bail.
State police said seven counselors were standing off the west side of Hudson St. near a camp access road when Goldblatt's 2009 Ford Escape veered off the road and hit three of them. The third person hit was Christopher Jones, 18, who was transported to Glens Falls Hospital with minor injuries.
Officials reported that Goldblatt had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11.
