SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Springs Police Department has released the identities of four people involved in a Monday morning accident in which a vehicle collided with a stopped car before hitting both a hot dog cart and a parked car.
Police arrived at the large parking lot shared by a liquor store and a hardware store located at the intersection of Marion and Excelsior avenues in response to a call made on Monday at 10:31 a.m.
According to police reports, Geoffrey Miller, 41, of Greenfield, drove his 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee into the rear of a stopped 2013 Hyundai Accent, operated by Ann Carroll, 47, of Gansevoort.
Miller had been traveling south on Marion Avenue.
After the initial collision, Miller's vehicle continued across Excelsior Avenue, traveling about 100 yards or so on grass and into the parking lot, where it first struck the Saratoga Awesome Dogs hot dog stand and then a parked 2014 Nissan Altima. At that point, the Jeep stopped moving.
The hot dog stand was occupied by two women at the time it was hit: 57-year-old Kathy Kahl of Saratoga Springs and 74-year-old Linda Jordan of Moreau.
Kahl, Jordan, and Miller were all transported to Saratoga Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Saratoga Springs Fire, Empire Ambulance and Community Ambulance all responded to the scene.
The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office also responded to assist with reconstruction.
While the accident's cause remains under investigation, alcohol is not believed to have been a contributing factor.
