NORTH GREENBUSH, N.Y. -- One person is dead following a two car accident on State Route 43 Saturday. Police say it happened around 5 p.m. at the intersection of Washington Avenue Extension and Route 43 in North Greenbush.

According to police, a pickup truck came off the connector heading eastbound and crossed over into the west bound lane, hitting a Ford Taurus.

Police say the driver of the Ford Taurus was pronounced dead at the scene. There was a passenger in the car, who is a minor that was taken to Albany Medical Center and is said to be in serious to critical condition.

The investigation is ongoing. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
