TOWN OF COLONIE — A New York Army National Guard master sergeant from Rome was struck by a car and killed in the Albany area early Sunday morning.
The search is now on for the hit and run driver, according to police. Rudolph E. Seabron was in town for weekend training.
Authorities said Seabron, age 57, is believed to have left the Philly Bar & Grill on Watervliet Shaker Road at about 3:15 a.m. At some point, he is believed to have been struck by a newer model Mazda CX-5 sport utility vehicle, police said. Parts from the vehicle were located at the scene.
Searbron’s body was then struck by a second vehicle while it was lying in the roadway. Police said this second driver stopped and called 9-1-1 at about 4:40 a.m.
An Army National Guard Casualty Assistance Team is working with Seabron’s family.
