SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- A 50-year-old woman was killed after she was hit by a truck while crossing the street near downtown Saratoga Springs.

Police there say according to witnesses, the woman was crossing Ballston Avenue at the intersection of Hamilton Street in the crosswalk Friday afternoon, with the right of way. That's when police say a black pickup truck driven by Paul Nicholson, 28, turned right off of Hamilton Street and hit her. She was taken to Albany Medical Center, where she later died.

Nicholson has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and DWI. He's being held in the Saratoga County Jail, pending a city court arraignment.

Police say more charges against Nicholson are possible. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
