LAKE GEORGE – A Lake George motorcyclist was seriously injured in an early Monday crash on the Northway in Warren County, sheriff’s officials there said.
Angielyn Barnes, 37, of Lake George, was airlifted to Albany Medical Center for treatment, officials said.
The crash happened at about 2 a.m. on the Northway, about a mile south of Exit 21 in the Town of Lake George, officials said.
Barnes was traveling north when she was unable to negotiate a sweeping right-hand curve and struck a section of guardwire on the western side of the highway and became ejected from the motorcycle, officials said.
The accident remained under investigation later Tuesday, but officials said excessive speed and alcohol appear to be contributing factors.
Members of the Warren County Sheriff’s Office were assisted by the state police, the Queensbury Central Fire Department and West Glens Falls EMS.
