Police: Speed likely factor in rollover crash in Altamont; Driver taken to hospital
A 27-year-old Guilderland man is lucky to be alive after a rollover crash on Monday.
Emergency personnel responded to a report of a vehicle crash at about 12:42 p.m. in the area of 3970 Western Turnpike. Noah L. Crawford, of 2515 Western Ave., was traveling east in his 2017 Volkswagen Passat. He had just passed another vehicle and lost control. Crawford rolled over and was ejected from the car, police said.
Crawford was transported to Albany Medical Center with injuries that are not life-threatening.
Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, police said, but imprudent speed is. The crash is under investigation and charges are pending.
