KINGSBURY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The Washington County Sheriff’s Office responded to a fatal motorcycle crash in the town of Kingsbury on Thursday around 7:06 p.m. Deputies say 20-year-old Alex Vega, of South Glens Falls, was taken to Glens Falls Hospital and later succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash.

Vega later succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash. A portion of the roadway was closed for some time as the accident was investigated.
