SCHENECTADY — A Sunday afternoon crash on Albany Street involved a driver impaired by drugs, police allege in court filings.

Ronald Maynor, 50, of Steinmetz Homes, faces a host of charges and tickets, including assault on a police officer. 

The incident happened just before 1 p.m. Sunday in the 1200 block of Albany Street, according to police.

There were two vehicles involved in the crash, although police had no details on how the accident happened. Multiple people were sent to the hospital as a precaution, police have said, though none of the injuries were serious.

A police spokesman Sunday initially attributed the crash to an SUV driver who had a medical episode. The spokesman did not have further information late Monday afternoon.

Court paperwork filed by police accuses Maynor of driving while ability impaired by drugs, misdemeanor cocaine possession and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.

Maynor also faces one count of second-degree assault, a felony. He is accused of fighting with city police Lt. Mark McCracken and other officers at the scene. McCracken suffered a shoulder injury that required treatment at Ellis Hospital and future scheduled treatment.

Maynor also faces infractions of backing unsafely, failing to use designated lane, driving on sidewalk and following too closely.
