Car hits, kills bicyclist, 62, on Central Avenue
A man has died after being hit by a car on Central Avenue in Colonie.
The crash happened just after 11:30 Monday morning near Elmwood Street.
The victim, Joseph Crandall, 62, was wearing high visibility clothing and riding on the correct side of the road, but didn’t have a helmet, investigators said. However, the driver still didn’t see him.
Crandall was pronounced dead at the scene. No criminal charges are expected, police said.
NewsChannel 13 interviewed Crandall three years ago as a neighborhood resident for a story about a crash in that same area. He talked about traffic and safety.
The road was closed for a time, but has since reopened.
The investigation continues. Anyone with information is asked to call Colonie Police at 518-782-2620.
