State police say the teenage boy killed Monday morning in a van crash on I-95N in Argyle is 15 year old Gedalia Rosenblatt of Monsey, NY.

Troopers said the driver of the van Yehoshua Hoffman, was seriously injured in the crash, and was still listed in critical condition Tuesday morning. The other staffer in the van was Yosef Franklin of Monsey, NY.

Ten other campers between the ages of 14 and 18 were in the van. The van departed from Camp Seven Springs in Bethel, NY at 8PM on Sunday.

The crash took place at about 7AM and caused both lanes of I-95N to be closed until 1:20PM.

The 15 passanger van was hauling five canoes and appears to have drifted off the left hand side of the road into the median and then ended up in a grassy sloped area.

The van flipped at least once, though came to rest on its wheels. State police say alcohol was not a factor.
