Saratoga Springs Woman Killed, Car Found in Creek

SARATOGA – A city woman was found inside her overturned vehicle just before 6 p.m. Tuesday by state Police responding to a report of a vehicle submerged in Fish Creek.

The woman, 66-year-old Ellen T. Steinberger, of Saratoga Springs, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators, who responded to the incident at Brown Point Lane in the town of Saratoga, found the 2007 Toyota Solara overturned after it had exited the bridge that crosses the creek. They do not suspect foul play.

“She was generous, funny, and a tremendous caregiver,” said Sue Edwards, who worked with Steinberger at the Saratoga Springs Public Library, where Steinberger was a volunteer at the Saratoga Room. She also provided walking tours at the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation. It is believed Steinberger – who was passionate about the arts in Saratoga - was originally from Long Island.  

Authorities said the bridge is a single lane path with railroad ties as side barriers on a private roadway. An autopsy is expected to be conducted Wednesday.
