Three-car crash sends four to hospital
Four people were hospitalized after a three-vehicle collision outside the city on Route 233 Thursday morning, according to a report by local law enforcement officers.
Sheriff’s deputies said Kenneth Hoag, 30, of Hoosick Falls, Rensselaer County, was northbound on Route 233 at about 9 a.m. when his Chevy Silverado pickup truck rear-ended a 2016 Kia Sol, driven by Harriot Brennan, 74, of Butts Road.
Deputies said Brennan was slowing to make a left turn onto Butts Road.
The rear-ending pushed Brennan’s Kia into the oncoming lane, where it was then struck by a southbound 2011 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Joseph Malbouf, 71, of Lowville, the law enforcers added.
Hoag complained of chest pain and was taken to Rome Memorial Hospital, alongside Malbouf and his passenger, Amy Malbouf, age 70, authorities said.
Brennan complained of neck pain and was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica, the sheriff’s department deputies added.
Hoag was ticketed for following too closely, the law enforcers stated.
He is scheduled to appear in City Court next month.
