A Connecticut man was killed Saturday on Route 9 by Northway Exit 13 when he attempted to make a U-turn.

State Police in Malta said Gerard H. Spadory, 51, of North Haven, Conn., driving a Acura, had stopped on the right shoulder of the southbound lane, and attempted to make a U-turn to head north on State Route 9.

Spadory failed to observe a pick-up truck operated by Stephen Hammond, 24, of Malta, also traveling south on State Route 9, police said. Hammond attempted to take evasive action to avoid the collision but was unable to, and his vehicle struck the driver side of the Acura. Spadory was pronounced dead at the scene by the Saratoga County coroner. Hammond, along with the three other occupants of the Acura, all from Connecticut, were transported by Malta/Stillwater EMS to Saratoga for non-life threatening injuries. Malta Ridge Fire Department and Fire Police also assisted at the scene.
