Witness at Clifton Park Crash Speaks
A motorist who called 911 before a crash happened last Friday night first saw the truck near the Edison Club on Riverview Road.
She saw that the truck was going all over the road. Her husband was driving, and she updated the dispatchers about the location of the truck as they followed the truck.
She was telling the 911 operator that she thought he was going to kill someone because of his erratic driving.
On Route 146 near Tanner road, the driver nearly killed four people when he crossed the median and hit a minivan. This resulted in a head-on collision. The accident happened about 3.5 miles from where the caller first saw the truck.
The driver was 27-year-old Brandon M. Lacovissi. He is from Clifton Park, and he was not injured in the crash.
The four people in the car all suffered from serious injuries and remained in the hospital. They were still in the hospital on Tuesday the 24th.
They were taken care of at Albany Medical Center ICU. This information came from the state police.
Police think that Lacovissi was under the influence of drugs at the time. He is facing charges including one count of first-degree vehicular assault.
