An elderly Saratoga Springs resident died after his car hit a curb and overturned on Route 9 in front of the Saratoga Spa State Park on Thursday.

Edwin Housman, 87, was driving on Avenue of the Pines in the park heading for Route 9 shortly after 6 p.m. when he crossed a double line and a state park police officer turned on flashing lights behind him, said Dan Keefe, a spokesman for the state Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation.

Possibly startled by the flashing lights, the man stepped on the gas, his car went across Route 9, hit a curb and overturned, Keefe said. The man was taken to Saratoga Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
