    An off-duty Rockland County sheriff's deputy suffered a fatal gunshot wound while driving in his car with his wife Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

    State Police said 42-year-old Frank Farina, of Stony Point, was pronounced dead at Orange Regional Medical Center on Tuesday after officers responding to a single-car crash on state Route 6 in Woodbury found him with a single gunshot wound to his head. 

    His wife, 42-year-old Jennifer Farina, was also in the car, which crossed the double yellow line, left the road and hit a rock embankment. She was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

    Farina was a member of the Rockland County Sheriff's Office's Corrections Division for more than 10 years.
