Schenectady firefighters worked with two sets of rescue tools for nearly an hour to free a young woman from her SUV after she was struck head on by a driver traveling, with no headlights, eastbound in the westbound lane of Interstate 890 near the Michigan Avenue exit. A LifeNet helicopter landed on the closed interstate to transport the injured driver to Albany Medical Center. The driver of the striking SUV was taken to Ellis Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries and charged with DWI.
