GUILDERLAND — Just before 7 a.m. last Thursday morning, a woman drove her sport utility vehicle along Route 20 from the intersection with Schoolhouse Road to 1769 Western Ave. with a man on its hood.

The driver, Nancy Ware, 73, and the 57-year-old man on the hood, Michael Tybur, were both terrified on the less-than-two-mile stretch.

“I was flabbergasted at the whole situation and the way it played out,” said Ware.

“I was fighting for my life,” said Tybur this week.
