Glenville resident killed in accident

AMSTERDAM — The Amsterdam Police Department is investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that occurred Friday. 

According to a news release, the police responded to the crash at 6:22 p.m. at the intersection of routes 5S and 30. 

Police said it appears that a 2014 Kawasaki motorcycle being operated by a 28-year-old Glenville resident was traveling west on Route 5S when a vehicle, a 2014 Subaru being driven by an 83-year-old Amsterdam resident, was heading east on Route 5S and turned left onto Route 30 in front of the motorcycle. 

The motorcyclist was treated at the scene for serious injuries and airlifted to Albany Medical Center where he ultimately died. The operator of the Subaru was treated at the scene and transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Amsterdam for evaluation. The names of the two people involved in the crash were not released. 

Police said the investigation is continuing, but at this time neither alcohol nor speed do not appear to be a factor.

The Amsterdam police were assisted by the Amsterdam Fire Department, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, New York State Police and the Greater Amsterdam Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
