Press Release

On February 11, 2024, State Police of Latham responded to the report of a two-car rollover crash on I-87 Thruway with multiple injuries.

On February 11, 2024, at about 7:21 p.m., Troopers responded to the report of a two-car crash on I-87 Thruway in the area of the Crossgates Mall ramp overpass from I-87 Adirondack Northway.  The investigation has determined a vehicle was southbound exiting I-87 Adirondack Northway, traveling on the ramp to the Crossgates Mall when it failed to navigate the curve of the roadway.  The car traveled through the guide rail, off the overpass and landed on I-87 Thruway coming to rest in the two left northbound lanes.  A northbound SUV on I-87 Thruway struck the car, causing the SUV to overturn.  Four individuals occupied each vehicle (total of eight) and all individuals were transported to The Albany Medical Center for treatment.  Three of those individuals reportedly sustained serious injuries and are listed in critical condition. 

All northbound lanes I-87 Thruway and the Crossgates Mall ramp were closed for approximately eight hours for the investigation, vehicle removal and repairs, they have since been reopened.  The investigation is ongoing, and no further updates are available on the injured individuals.
