COLONIE — A 76-year-old town man who was using a wheeled walker was hit by a car as he was trying to cross Route 9 near Autopark Drive.
According to Colonie Lt. Robert Donnelly, on Monday, June 24 at around 9:21 p.m., Anthony Hadden “attempted to cross the road by suddenly entering the lane of travel into the path of the vehicle.”
He was wearing dark clothing with no reflective material attached to it, according to Donnelly.

Both lanes of Route 9 were closed while police investigated.
