On September 25, 2022, at about 4:08 a.m. State Police of Clifton Park responded to the report of a two-car rollover crash on I-87 northbound in Halfmoon, NY. The investigation determined an 18-year-old operator was traveling northbound on I-87 when they struck the rear of a vehicle being operated by Anjelica R. Espinoza Flores, 22, of San Antonio, TX. Both vehicles rolled over multiple times, and both drivers were transported to Albany Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries. An investigation determined both drivers were impaired at the time of the accident. They were arrested and issued tickets for Driving While Intoxicated.
