WILTON, N.Y. (NEWS10) — A Saratoga Springs man is in serious but stable condition after crashing his 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle into a trailer on Friday night in Wilton, the Sheriff’s Office confirmed. The trailer that the man ran into was being towed by a 2014 Dodge Ram.
According to police, the motorcyclist was traveling south on Route 9 when he collided with the truck and trailer operated by a woman from Olmsteadville, who was traveling north. The motorcyclist’s left leg suffered serious injury and the woman driver was unharmed.

The man is in stable condition at Albany Medical Center, police said. The crash is under investigation.
