SCHENECTADY — State police have identified the New Mexico motorist who, according to a state police investigation, caused a rollover crash Wednesday on Interstate 890 in Schenectady.
Mary C. Walker, 52, of Aztec, was taken to Ellis Hospital for evaluation and was later released, police said. No other injuries were reported.
The incident happened at about 11:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes near the Broadway exit, according to state police spokesman Trooper Mark Cepiel.
The crash happened when Walker, in the middle lane, moved to the right lane and struck a car driven by Amy E. Cremo, 39, of Scotia, troopers said. Walker swerved and over-corrected multiple times, causing her car to roll over, Cepiel said.
Cremo was not injured. Walker, in Schenectady from New Mexico, was driving a rental car. She was ticketed for unsafe lane change, Cepiel said.
The crash was one of two rollover crashes to happen in Schenectady County — and one of three in the area — in a short period of time Wednesday. The other Schenectady County rollover happened in Niskayuna on the roundabout near the Rexford Bridge. A car also rolled over in Colonie Wednesday as part of a larger incident.
