Cohoes Man Dead After Waterford Bridge Crash
On March 15, 2018, a Cohoes man died after a collision on Waterford Bridge. The man was 38-years-old. He died after a head-on collision that occurred on the Cohoes-Waterford Bridge on a Thursday morning.
The collision happened at around 5:42 a.m. This information comes from Mayor Shawn Morse. The car was going southbound on the bridge when it collided with a truck that was going northbound on the bridge, the mayor said.
