Police trying to figure out why Queensbury man walked into Clifton Park traffic

CLIFTON PARK - He was 26-years-old and had great things to look forward to, but Bradley Brean, who with his fiancee, was expecting their first child in November, was killed late Saturday night while walking along Route 146 in Clifton Park, not far from Miller Road.

911 callers told dispatchers that Brean was in the lane of traffic, not along the side of the road.


Brean's fiancee, Liza Kilmer, tells NewsChannel 13 me that Brean loved life, his family, and when time allowed, he like to go fishing.  

He'd arrived by car at a concert at Upstate Concert Hall Saturday night, but police can't figure out why he walked away from there and why he walked in the road.

Captain Dan Morley says the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office reconstruction unit is figuring out exactly how Brean was hit and investigators are trying to determine why he left the concert venue. "It's a lot of legwork. We go back and talk to people that knew him," said Morley. "We try to piece together what happened that evening at the Upstate Concert Hall, review the footage from the actual establishment itself, try to find out what if anything prompted him to take a walk from the place."

Kilmer told NewsChannel 13, "None of it makes any sense." She said he and Brean were supposed to get married next year.

"He was the best friend anyone could ask for," she said.
