MALTA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A Saratoga Springs man was killed, and three others injured, in a two-car crash near the Malta Drive-In on Route 9 on Sunday afternoon.

Leonardi’s passenger, 49-year-old John Stevens of Saratoga Springs, was killed in the crash. Leonardi was air lifted to Albany Medical Center.

The driver of the pickup truck and their passenger were both taken to Albany Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash remains under investigation. NEWS10 ABC will continue to update this story with the latest information.
