Driver Involved in Fatal Proctor’s Accident Ticketed

The man who Schenectady Police say hit and and killed a Proctor's Theatre volunteer as she was crossing the street received a ticket today.

Police issued the traffic summons to 36-year-old Andrew Corridore of Schenectady for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

78-year-old Charlotte Gallo died nearly two weeks ago while crossing Broadway after a performance at Proctor's.

Gallo's son, Charles Shannon, says he is satisfied Corridore was ticketed, but only believes he is a small part of what happened.

Previously, Shannon told News 10 that where his mom was hit needs more lighting and signage.

“I think some flashing lights would help out a lot,” said Shannon. ” They have two small signs on both sides of the street, but being that it's not all that bright down there I find it hard to see, especially if you concentrate on traffic and people.”

Shannon even has sympathy for the driver who was not speeding or driving under the influence, telling us it's hard on Corridore and that he is sure he's going to live with it for a long time.
