Police Are Investigating A Motorcycle Crash With An Unknown Cause
Although New York City has said that police will no longer be responding to minor car accidents, they are still required to respond to accidents with injuries or fatalities. When police respond to an accident, they are required to file a report. Often, they will determine if a person is at fault by speaking to the others involved and witnesses. If one of the drivers violated a traffic law that was a direct or indirect cause, they will be considered to be at least partially at fault in the accident.
However, some accidents have no witnesses, and the drivers who are involved could be injured or even unable to speak. When circumstances like these occur, the police will often seek out footage from nearby surveillance or traffic cameras to help them determine the cause of the accident.
CBS 6 Albany reports that an accident in Corinth involving three motorcycles is under investigation.
The accident occurred just before 5 p.m. last Tuesday near Main Street in Corinth.
Several motorcycles were involved in the crash. The three motorcycles were all driven by males, one of which had a female passenger. All were taken to Saratoga Hospital with injuries.
One of the drivers suffered from critical injuries and was later airlifted to Albany Medical Center.
Police brought in a drone to survey the accident site. They have yet to determine the cause of the accident and are currently treating it as a criminal investigation. It is believed that a vehicle on the wrong side of the road may have been the cause.
