GLENVILLE - A Johnstown motorcyclist was seriously injured in a late Sunday crash in Glenville, police said.

The rider, identified as 30-year-old Sean Gamble, was airlifted to Albany Medical Center for treatment. He is expected to survive, police said.

The crash happened at about 11:30 p.m. on Route 5, just west of the Route 103 bridge, police said.

Witnesses reported seeing a motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed through the Route 5 and 103 intersection seconds before the crash happened. No other vehicles were involved, police said.

The accident remained under investigation Monday, but police identified excessive speed as the apparent main contributing factor.

Glenville Police were assisted by the Schenectady County Sheriff's Department, Beukendaal Fire Department, Rotterdam Junction Fire Department, Glenville Highway Department and Mohawk Ambulance Service.

The Glenville crash happened on the same evening as two rollovers in the area, one in Rotterdam and another in Schenectady.

In the Schenectady crash, a driver hit a gas pump at the Brandywine Speedway at about 11 p.m., rolling the vehicle onto its side. That driver then fled the scene, Schenectady police said.

In Rotterdam, a vehicle struck a parked car and flipped onto its roof at about 8:30 p.m. The driver was taken to an area hospital with injuries described as non-life-threatening.
