Driver and tractor-trailer collide during Schenectady commute hours

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – It was an ugly commute Tuesday morning for one Schenectady driver who crashed his car into the side of a tractor-trailer.

The accident happened at the intersection of Maxon Road and Technology Drive near VanVranken Avenue.

The driver of the vehicle tells News10 ABC that he was on his way to work when he had to slam on his brakes. But it was too late, and his car slid into the side of the trailer.

“I see the metal railing the glass flew in my face,” said the driver. “I tried to jump out one window, then made it out the other window.”

The good news? The driver says he works at an auto body repair shop just down the street.
