DELMAR — Two teenage customers at Dunkin’ Donuts were injured on Friday when a car crashed into the store.

The driver, Jack A. Benjamin, 27, of Oneonta, turned himself in at the police station later on Sunday and was charged with three traffic infractions, according police. 

A man was thrown from his snowmobile Saturday night after he crashed into a tree in Berne, police say.

Guilderland Police have found the driver, said spokesman Curtis Cox of the Guilderland Police, aided by a witness who took down a license-plate number.

On Thanksgiving eve, just after darkness fell, 74-year-old William S. Kelsey of Berne was navigating the steep “Upper Letter S” curves on the edge of the Helderberg escarpment when he hit a deer, police say.

A school bus was hit from behind early Friday morning. The sole student aboard was unhurt.

The infamous “jump” that drew teen thrill-seekers for years on Hurst Road in Guilderland — to go well above the speed limit in hopes of getting their cars airborne — is being regraded to a “gentle slope,” said Highway Superintendent Steve Oliver this week.

Lawrence T. Staubach, who was 22, died on Oct. 2 when the SUV he was driving on Bozenkill Road in Altamont left the roadway and hit trees. He was alone in the car.

The Altamont fire chief said this morning he could not confirm if the person had been killed until the coroner arrived.

The neighborhood surrounding a state DOT garage in Voorheesville was jarred by an early-morning explosion caused by trucks that were on fire.
