Troopers: Mechanicville man killed in Tuesday morning car-semi crash in Rensselaer County


SCHAGHTICOKE — A Mechanicville man was killed in a Tuesday morning car-semi crash in Schaghticoke, state police said.

Matthew J. Waldron, 25, of Mechanicville, was taken to Samaritan Hospital, where he died of his injuries, state police said.

The crash happened at about 7:46 a.m. on Route 67 between Buttermilk Falls Road and Muriel Lane, state police said.

The preliminary investigation determined that Waldron was traveling east on Route 67 in a 2012 Nissan Altima when he struck an eastbound tractor-trailer from behind, state police said.

The tractor-trailer was operated by Kevin McBride, 48, of Troy. McBride was not hurt.

The crash remained under investigation later Tuesday.
