MOREAU, N.Y. (AP) - An 81-year-old man has died after running a stop sign and colliding with a flatbed tow truck in Saratoga County.
The Saratoga County Sheriff's office says Guy Frenya of Moreau was pronounced dead shortly after the 10 a.m. crash on Monday at the intersection of Route 32 and Reservoir Road in Moreau.
Police say Frenya failed to stop at a stop sign and drove a 2005 Subaru from Reservoir Road onto Route 32 into the path of a truck driven by 27-year-old Berakah Smith of Gansevoort. Smith was not hurt.
Sgt. Brent Dupras said it was unclear why Frenya failed to stop. Police were looking into whether he had a medical problem that caused him to lose control of the car.
