SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – One person is dead after an accident outside of SPAC in Saratoga Springs Sunday night.
The Saratoga Springs Police Department received word of the serious accident that occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Route 9 South near the intersection of Avenue of the Pines at the State Park.
That accident involved two motorcycles and an SUV.
Police say the female driver of the SUV was attempting to make a left turn into the state park when a motorcycle traveling northbound on Route 9 struck the vehicle.
The male driver of one of the motorcycles was transported to Saratoga Hospital where they were pronounced dead a short time after the accident.
The driver of the second motorcycle and a passenger were both transported to Albany Medical Center with what police say appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the SUV was transported to Saratoga Hospital and was being treated for non-life threatening injuries, as well.
The crash happened after a sold-out concert at SPAC by country star Luke Bryan.
Traffic on Route 9 was reduced to one lane in each direction from the time of the accident until 2:30 a.m. Monday for police to conduct accident reconstruction.
State Park Police say their protocol is to start traffic
enforcement 10 to 15 minutes before a show lets out. With the main show set to
end at 10:55 p.m., this meant they would start traffic enforcement at 10:40 to 10:45
p.m., shortly after the accident.
No charges or tickets have been issued at this time, and the accident investigation is ongoing. Police are not releasing the names of the people involved until family can be notified.
