Rodriguez passed away around 4:49 a.m. on Saturday, December 13 when her car veered off East Main St., collided with a utility pole and careened down a 70-foot embankment, causing her to be thrown from the vehicle.

Two days later, 24-year-old Thomas Greco perished in a head-to-head collision on Central Highway, Stony Point, further devastating the community.
