COLONIE - A Mechanicville man was killed in a crash off the Northway in Colonie Wednesday morning, state police said.

Troopers identified the driver killed in the one-car crash as 79-year-old Charles W. Kerls.

He died when his vehicle went off the eastern shoulder of the roadway and struck a tree at about 10:19 a.m., state police said.

The crash happened off the northbound lanes, between Exits 2 and 4, troopers said. It remained under investigation Wednesday afternoon.

The crash was one of two fatal crashes on area roadways Wednesday morning. A Porters Corners motorcyclist was killed in a crash with a pickup truck just after 9 a.m. in Wilton, Saratoga County Sheriff's officials said.
