A man has been arrested after an attempted carjacking in Albany.

The suspect, Sean Hardy, 21, remains in the hospital, recovering from the crash.

This started as a robbery investigation, say police.

Hardy got in a car from the passenger side around 5 p.m. Monday. He pulled out a gun and demanded the car, say police.

The driver kept going – eventually crashing into some trees near First Avenue and Benjamin Street.

Hardy was arraigned at the hospital Thursday on a slew of charges. Bail was set at $50,000.
