SARATOGA SPRINGS — A 38-year-old Schuylerville woman was killed early Sunday after being struck by a vehicle along State Route 9.
Just prior to 1 a.m. on Sunday, April 18, officers from the Saratoga Springs Police Department responded to State Route 9 just north of the State Park’s East/West Road. The initial report was that a vehicle has struck a pedestrian.
Officers arrived and located the pedestrian, who has been identified as 38-year-old Lindsey Irish of Schuylerville. The Saratoga Springs Fire Department also responded and provided emergency medical treatment to Irish; however, efforts were unsuccessful.
Police said their investigation shows that Irish had been walking southbound along the east side of State Route 9 just prior to the accident. For unknown reasons, Irish partially entered the right northbound lane and was struck by a 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit traveling northbound in that lane. There was no indication of alcohol or drug use with the driver of the Rabbit. The Saratoga Springs Police Department was also assisted at the scene by the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office Accident Reconstruction Team.
