6.06 Manhattan, NY - NYC Tourist in Critical Condition After Being Struck by Scooter

Albany, NY – Man in Critical Condition After Multi-Car Crash on Watervliet Ave

Albany, NY (May 08, 2021) – One man was left in critical condition, and two others were injured during a multi-vehicle accident on Thursday, May 6th. 

Reports show that the crash took place at about 9:00 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Watervliet Avenue in the area of Garfield Lane in Albany when a Lexus sedan tried to pass a car on the right at a high rate of speed and crashed into a parked Dodge Durango.

The force of the impact pushed the Durango into the back of a Dodge pick-up truck causing it to roll down the street, but only after it pinned the driver of the Durango, who was outside of his SUV, between the two parked vehicles.

The other two vehicles that were damaged were parked and unattended. The victim that was injured the worst in the accident was a 59-year-old male pedestrian who happened to be standing between the two parked vehicles when they were hit.  

Responding EMTs reportedly had to use tourniquets on the man’s legs. He was then transported via ambulance to Albany Medical Center in critical condition.

The male driver and female passenger from the Lexus stained non-life-threatening injuries.

The roadway was shut down to traffic for several hours as police investigated the scene,
