Hit-and-run on Northway injures two
In late February, two people that were pulled over to assess a problem with their car were slightly injured after a car passed by them out on the Northway in Malta, hitting their automobile.
New York State Police Sgt. John Phelps said 26-year-old Ashley Shell and Cody Thivierge of Ballston Lake and Corinth, respectively, had pulled over on the curb between exits 11 and 12 of the Northway at around 6 p.m. when a vehicle sideswiped them. It was not known exactly whether they were in or outside the vehicle, Phelps added.
They were brought to the Saratoga Hospital for immediate treatment of their minor wounds.
Ballston Spa resident Patricia LaRosa, 42, reported to the police that she was the driver who sideswiped the victims’ vehicle, albeit only after reaching her destination. According to Phelps, LaRosa claimed that she was sneezing and, as a result, failed to notice that she already struck a vehicle.
