Bethlehem police ID crash victim - Times Union
I happened across this story from another moderator on here via FB. Upon learning it was a NY crash, the silver/purple combo made me think about a vehicle I've seen driving around town. I checked my local paper, and as it turns out, it was that car...Thomas G. Brown, 20, was traveling north in a Subaru WRX sports sedan on Bender Lane in the area of Stonewall Lane in Delmar when he lost control of the vehicle, left the road and hit several trees just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday, police said.
Responding members of the Bethlehem Police Department, Elsmere Fire Department and Delmar-Bethlehem EMS, were able to quickly remove Brown, the car's only occupant, from the wreck.
He was taken to Albany Medical Center Hospital by Delmar-Bethlehem EMS and Albany County Paramedics, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
Speed is confirmed to be a contributing factor in the crash and the investigation is continuing, police said.
We all have these cars because we like to drive, and we like to drive spiritedly. While our cars do well in crash test scenarios, they are not invincible. Be safe out there, everyone...
