Troopers Say Ballston Spa Man Was Online Shopping at Time of Deadly Crash

Manslaughter charges have been brought up against a Ballston Spa man for his involvement in a deadly crash on the Thruway in Western New York back in June. 

State Police say that a box truck operated by 27-year-old Kristofer Gregorek was traveling westbound and rear-ended a car between exits 48A and 49, just east of Buffalo. 

45-year-old Ellen Volpe of Rochester was pronounced dead at the scene. Another person was injured in the crash. During the course of the investigation, troopers determined that Gregorek was using his cell phone, shopping online and then completing a survey at the time of the crash.
