LATHAM, N.Y. - An 89-year old man lost control of his car an ended up in a ditch Friday morning near the Latham Traffic Circle.
The elderly man was traveling south on route 2 attempting to make a left hand turn at old London road. That's when witnesses told police he lost control.
First, he drove onto the side walk near Papa John’s then crossed 5 lanes of traffic, hitting two vehicles and ending up in a construction ditch.
Thankfully, no one was hurt, just a very shaken up man.
Police are not sure how or why the man lost control but believe he may have been mistaking the gas for the break.
