HALFMOON, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Crews are responding to a vehicle that police say was intentionally driven into the Mohawk River off the Crescent Bridge in Halfmoon Tuesday afternoon.

The incident happened at around 11:30 a.m. at the corner of Route 9 and Terminal Road, just below the bridge.

Several bystanders said this has happened several times and the Saratoga County undersheriff confirmed.

Police say they discussed putting barriers at this location in the past but the state was reluctant to do it.

NEWS10 ABC has reached out to state officials for a comment but have not heard back.
