16-year-old killed in Saratoga Springs crash

SARATOGA SPRINGS — A 16-year-old boy was killed on Tuesday after a driver allegedly ran a red light and struck the teenager’s car, Saratoga Springs police said.

Assistant Chief Bill Robertson said it was about 2 p.m. when police received several calls about a traffic accident at Harvest Hills and Redwood Road.

Robertson said that the 16-year-old was attempting to turn left to go west on Harvest Hills. Witnesses told police that a 28-year-old man driving south on Redwood Road ran a red light and struck the teen’s car.

The 16-year-old died on the scene from his injuries, said Robertson. Medical personnel tried to revive him but their attempts were unsuccessful. Robertson said that the Saratoga Springs Fire Department, Saratoga Springs police and Life Flight responded to the crash.

The 28-year-old driver of the other vehicle was transported to a hospital by ambulance in critical but stable condition, said Robertson.

According to Robertson, witnesses reported that prior to the crash the 28-year-old man was speeding and driving erratically. Police are investigating the crash as a possible road-rage situation, he added.

Robertson said that police will not be releasing the identification of the victim at this time.

Southbound traffic on Redwood Road is closed at 2100 North, and northbound traffic on Redwood Road is closed at Aspen Hills Blvd. Both directions will be closed till about 6 p.m., according to a tweet from Saratoga Springs city officials.
