SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- Witnesses of a fatal motorcycle crash at SPAC on Sunday night told police they saw the driver of the motorcycle speed up to beat a light when he crashed into an SUV.

Police released more information on those witness accounts Tuesday and the identity of that motorcyclist.

Saratoga Police say Christopher Thomas of Troy died from severe chest injuries in the crash. Officers say both Thomas and a motorcycle carrying two other people crashed into the back of an SUV on Route 9.

Police say witnesses told them the motorcycles were trying to beat the light as the SUV was turning left, hitting the SUV.

The two others on the other bike were ejected during the crash, but are expected to be okay.
