Man causes three car pile-up after parking car on I-87

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – A Florida man driving a Toyota Corolla caused a three car accident Sunday when he parked his car in the center lane of I-87.

One minor injury was reported as a result of the accident. State police in Latham were able to respond quickly to the scene in Colonie and closed down three lanes of traffic in order for EMS to help the driver.

All three vehicles were removed from the scene by tow trucks. The 63-year-old driver, who walked away from the scene and was later found by Troopers, was ticketed for parking on pavement and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.

Three of the four lanes of traffic were closed for about 45 minutes during the investigation. All lanes up traffic were back open by 1:30 p.m.
