Guilderland teen dies after Hurst Road crash


GUILDERLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A 17-year-old has died after being involved in a single-car crash.

Around 8:25 p.m. Sunday, police said an SUV driving westbound on Hurst Road went off the road and crashed into a tree on the south side of the road.

Three Guilderland High School students were inside the vehicle at the time.

The driver, 17-year-old Alyssa Gelfand, was taken to Albany Medical Center via helicopter with severe traumatic injuries. She later died.

The two other occupants suffered noncritical injuries and were also taken to Albany Med.

Police believe speed was a contributing factor in the crash, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor at this time.

The investigation into the crash continues.
