WILTON, N.Y. – State Police are investigating a three car,
personal injury accident which happened in the Town of Wilton on Saturday
morning.

State Police say Troopers responded to the accident around
10:45 a.m. at the intersection of ST-9 and Ballard Road. The road had to be
closed for about one hour.

According to authorities, the preliminary
investigation shows that a westbound vehicle on Ballard Road may have failed to
yield the right-of-way and driven through a red light. Troopers say this caused
the collision with northbound and southbound vehicles in the center of the
intersection. 

The occupants of all three cars were
taken to hospitals in Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls and Albany with a variety
of injuries. State Police do not believe the injuries are serious or
life-threatening. 

State Police in Wilton were assisted at
the scene by the Saratoga County Sheriff's Department. Fire and rescue was
provided by Wilton Fire, Wilton EMS, Moreau EMS, Malta EMS and General Schuyler
EMS.
