New York state police are seeking the public's help in finding the driver of a vehicle that was involved in an apparent road rage crash that claimed the life of a Middletown woman and injured her 9-year-old son.

Troopers say 27-year-old Tiffany Lesane was driving a dark blue Ford Focus on Interstate 84 in Wallkill around 3:15 p.m. Friday when she traveled into an embankment in the center median and overturned.

Lesane was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her son was treated at Westchester Medical Center for a head injury.

Troopers say witnesses reported that it appeared Lesane was involved in a road rage encounter with an unidentified light blue vehicle traveling in the same direction.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state police in Middletown at 845-344-5300.
