A State Police vehicle and troopers close off a portion of Corinth Road at Indiana Avenue Monday night following a reported fatal accident involving a pedestrian.

QUEENSBURY — A Queensbury man was killed Monday night when he was hit by an SUV while trying to cross Corinth Road.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office said the man, Henry C. Chabot, 83, of Queensbury, was crossing from the south shoulder of the the road near the Minnesota Avenue intersection, from the area of a Glens Falls Transit bus stop, when he was hit by Kerri L. Driscoll, 25, of North Creek who was driving a 2018 Nissan Rogue SUV westbound.

Chabot suffered undisclosed serious injuries and efforts to revive him with CPR at the scene were not successful. He was later pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities said he had gotten off a bus moments earlier.

A helicopter was called to take him to Albany Medical Center, but it was canceled when efforts to revive him failed.

According to police, the driver remained at the scene and at this time alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash. The crash remains under investigation.

Police closed a portion of Corinth Road at Indiana Avenue headed westbound for nearly four hours as evidence at the scene was documented. The incident was reported at about 5:15 p.m. Monday and the roadway reopened at about 8:45 p.m.

State Police and West Glens Falls firefighters and EMS assisted at the scene.
