Man pleads guilty in Americade hit and run
A Northumberland man pleaded guilty to a hit and run during Americade weekend, last September.
The Saratoga County District Attorney’s office says 51-year-old Michael Brownell struck a motorcyclist head-on in the area of route 32 and Rugg Road, causing serious injuries to the victim.
They say Brownell then fled the scene and hid his truck behind an abandoned farmhouse.
He was later arrested, and police say Brownell was drunk at the time of the crash.
He is expected to serve three to nine years in state prison.
