Three Guilderland High School students were injured in a crash Sunday evening on Hurst Road after hitting a tree just yards away from the site of a 2000 crash that killed two teenagers. The driver of the car, Alyssa Gelfand, died of her injuries on Tuesday.

According to his arrest records, it’s not the first time that Sand has sped up when police have tried to pull him over.

GUILDERLAND — The 9-1-1 call came in from a passenger; the car’s driver was threatening to kill herself, possibly with a gun.

The Voorheesville Board of Education approved a provision to allow the school nurse to administer the drug Naloxone, also known by its brand name Narcan, to students and staff. Naloxone prevents death from an opioid overdose.

A toxicology report has shown no drugs were present in Ross Herzog’s body when he died, at age 30, in August on a woodland path near Altamont.

Guilderland Police responded to Crossgates Mall on Oct. 12 for a report of a shoplifter at the Hollister store, and wound up stopping an assault on four Hollister security officers.
