RAYMERTOWN, N.Y. - A crash in Raymertown sent four individuals to the hospital, including a pregnant woman.
"Severe trauma," said Raymertown Fire Chief, William Roberts about the injuries.
A 911 call was made at 5:25 a.m. reporting a reckless driver heading westbound. While Rensselaer County deputies were checking Route 7, a report came in for a one-vehicle accident near the Raymertown Garage.
According to the Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office, only one car was involved in the accident.
Deputies responded and found a 2010 Hyundai Elantra off the roadway in a ditch. The 8-month pregnant driver, Collette Hoag, 25, of Hoosick, had to be extracted from the vehicle.
The passengers, Thomas Dalliard of Colonie, Domenic Thane and Rebecca Silver of Bennington were all taken to Albany Medical Center.
All are listed in critical condition.
Chief Roberts says he has responded to many serious accidents along Route 7, but that this is one of the worst he's ever seen.
"Two were ejected. One was pinned behind the wheel, the driver," said Roberts.
Chief Roberts says the driver and three passengers are all over the age of 21. The Sheriff's Office would not give any further details about what could have caused the accident or if alcohol or speed could have been a factor in the crash.
"A very severe impact with a bank. It was a very hard stop," said Roberts.
Albany Medical Center says the driver of the vehicle is still in critical, but stable condition.
What caused the vehicle to leave the roadway remains under investigation.
