On February 24, 2018 at approximately 8:49 P.M. troopers responded to Kinns Rd. in the town of Clifton Park for a single vehicle crash which resulted in a fatality.
At the scene troopers found a 2002 Ford F-250 on its side in the front lawn of a residence on the road with the occupant, Daniel A. Kane, 63, of Clifton Park, in the vehicle with obvious signs of being deceased. The Saratoga County Coroner pronounced him deceased at the scene and ordered removal for an autopsy at a later date. Kane was the sole occupant in the vehicle and was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
Investigation thus far has determined that the vehicle was travelling at a high rate of speed in an easterly direction and failed exited the south shoulder of the roadway, struck a ditch and earthen embankment, a utility pole and guide wire before coming to rest on the driver side of the vehicle. Excessive speed along with possible alcohol involvement are being looked at as contributing factors.
State Police were assisted at the scene by members of the Jonesville Fire Department and Ballston Lake EMS.
