POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) - A Hudson Valley teen faces manslaughter charges for a car crash that killed two of his friends.

Dustin Hale, 17, was indicted by a grand jury on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide, first-degree vehicular manslaughter and two counts of second-degree manslaughter. Local media report that the Pine Plains resident was arraigned Thursday in Dutchess County Court.

Police say Hale was driving his car recklessly while impaired when he crashed off a rural road in Pine Plains and slammed into trees on the afternoon of Aug. 29. Killed in the crash were 16-year-old Zachary Pruner of Stanfordville and 17-year-old Gian Paolo Stagnaro of Pine Plains. Hale and a 16-year-old boy were injured.

Hale entered a plea of not guilty to all counts.

Hale's family and his lawyer declined comment.

    A state agency is suggesting summer shutdowns at the Indian Point nuclear power plant in the New York suburbs. The idea is to protect migrating and spawning fish who might otherwise get sucked into the plant. Indian Point takes 2.5 billion gallons a day from the Hudson River to make steam and cool its two reactors.
