PRESS RELEASE
 

On September 22, 2020 State Police took two subjects into custody after a vehicle pursuit on Interstate 87 in the Town of Clifton Park.  A preliminary investigation shows that State Police from Clifton Park responded to the area of Plank Road and Kinns Road for a report of a hit and run property damage auto accident.  Patrols later located the suspect vehicle and attempted to stop it in the Town of Clifton Park.  The suspect failed to comply and a pursuit was initiated.  The fleeing vehicle travelled north bound onto Interstate 87, entered a U-turn in an attempt to travel south bound on Interstate 87, and struck a southbound vehicle.  Both suspects fled the scene on foot and were located after a brief search.  The accident has been cleared from Interstate 87 at the time of this posting and charges are pending.
