New York State Exposed: The cost of driving in NY

Every day, most of us have to get in a car and drive somewhere, whether it's to work, school or the grocery store. The cost of driving can add up, from gas prices to Thruway tolls to registration costs.

Matt Cleckner is a husband and father of three children. He loves to drive. 

Matt Cleckner said, “It's the feel of driving, being out on the road, you got your music going, you're in the zone.”

But when it comes to his kids driving, he’s not just talking about safety. 

Cleckner said, “Honestly, I’m frightened. I know that insurance is going to be expensive.”

How does New York compare to other states when it comes to insurance rates? According to Insure.com, New York’s average car insurance rates rank among the bottom ten in the country. The bad news is other fees and high gas prices.

Jury deliberates in trial of Greece woman linked to West Webster tragedy

For the first time during the trial involving the West Webster shootings, News10NBC is hearing from one of the firefighters who survived the ambush.

Ted Scardino was shot the morning of Christmas Eve 2012, a day he won’t ever forget. 

Jurors began deciding the fate Monday of the only person that has been charged in connection with the West Webster tragedy that happened on Christmas Eve 2012. They deliberated for just a couple of hours before stopping for the day. 

Dawn Nguyen is accused of lying on paperwork and buying the guns that were used to kill two firefighters, Mike Chiapperini and Tomasz Kaczowka, in the line of duty. Two other firefighters, Ted Scardino and Joseph Hofstetter survived the attack.  

Police say the gunman, William Spengler, set a fire and then hid, waiting for the heroes to arrive and then opened fire.

Prosecution rests in trial of Greece woman linked to West Webster tragedy

It has been a long, tough few days for the loved one of the West Webster firefighters killed in the Christmas Even ambush.

All week long prosecutors have made their case that the woman accused of buying the guns used to shoot those firefighters bought them knowing the suspect was a felon.

Friday, the prosecution rested its case in the trial of Dawn Nguyen. Now the case is in the hands of the defense.

The defense isn’t required to call any witnesses but in court today, defense attorneys say they have three people on stand-by.

From the beginning and through today, prosecutors have been trying to prove to the jury Dawn Nguyen bought the guns for William Spengler and knew he was a felon.

It will also house the new Wegmans School of Nutrition and allow RIT to expand its College of Health Sciences and Technology.

The 45,000-square foot facility is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015.
