Niskayuna, NY (October 5, 2018) – Two drivers who were involved in a collision that resulted in an overturned vehicle and injuries on Wednesday, October 3, have been identified. The crash took place at approximately 2:00 p.m. at the intersection of Route 7 and Balltown Road when two vehicles collided.
19-year-old Devin Farley was traveling east on Route 7 with one passenger when he blew through a red light and subsequently crashed into another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle, 73-year-old Robert Drost was the only other party involved in the accident.
