SARANAC LAKE, New York — State police say a trooper is recovering from injuries suffered when his patrol vehicle was involved in an on-duty crash on an Adirondack road.
The agency tells local media that 36-year-old Trooper Keith Brown was en route to an emergency call around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday when he attempted to pass a vehicle traveling in the same direction on state Route 86 in the village of Saranac Lake.
Troopers say the driver of the other vehicle made a left turn to enter a private driveway and hit Brown's marked patrol car, which had its sirens and lights on. Brown's car was pushed off the road and into a parked, unoccupied truck.
Brown was taken to Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake, where he was treated for back injuries and released.
Two people in the other vehicle weren't injured.
