PLATTSBURGH (AP) - State police say a 49-year-old Essex County man has died after a one-car crash on the Adirondack Northway.
Police say 49-year-old Paul T. McCoy of New Russia was driving a 1997 Chevy pickup truck north on Interstate 87 in the town of Plattsburgh when he went off the road on a slight curve at 11:30 p.m. Saturday.
The truck hit the east side guardrail and veered back across both lanes to hit the west side guardrail. McCoy was partially ejected and died at the scene of the crash.
Police say it appears McCoy had been drinking and driving too fast.
