TROY, N.Y. – Concerns about a Hoosick Street intersection are
being raised after two girls were treated for minor injuries after they were struck by a car.
Shadeyah Jabbar, 13, said she was crossing Hoosick and Tenth
Streets on Sunday night around 9 p.m. She said she and three of her friends
were on their way to Stewart's to pick up Lysol for her mother when the accident
Police say the light had just turned green when the driver of the
car went around two vehicles that were stopped, to allow the young girls to
According to authorities, the driver, 27-year-old Anthony St.
Pierre of Brunswick told officers he didn't see them and couldn't stop in time.
Troy Police say that after Jabbar came off the hood of the car,
she was thrown onto her 10- year-old friend. Both were taken to the hospital.
Fortunately, the girls only suffered minor injuries. Her mother,
Mecca, said it's not only that driver she is concerned about, but also the
Jabbar called the intersection "scary" and she is not
alone. Following several pedestrian accidents on Hoosick Street last May, the State
Department of Transportation, the Mayor and City Council gathered to unveil new
safety measures. It included red lights and signs for drivers along with
elevator buttons for pedestrians. At the time, officials said the precautions
could only go so far and they urged the public to follow the rules of the road.
Troy police reiterated that advice on Monday.
The driver of the vehicle stopped after the accident and stayed at
the scene. He was cited for failing to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk.
