You may have noticed heavy traffic approaching the Crossgates Mall exit ramp on the south-bound side of Northway, Wednesday? I remember seeing a car-fire pic on Twitter and thought, oops, somebody has electrical issues. As it turns out, it was much worse than that. 

According to News10:

While authorities are aren't releasing names, they are saying that one was killed on 87 southbound when the driver tried to change lanes, hit a guardrail, and went airborne landing in the center lane on the driver side. The car then caught fire due to a fuel leak. Police aren't releasing names at this time.

As you may know, this section of the Northway has always been a bit tricky, given the various on-ramps that come together along with the uphill exit ramp for Crossgates.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the family from us here at Q103.
