Local woman hurt in crash

A local woman was seriously injured in a one-vehicle accident in Kingsbury Friday night.

On Oct. 18, at about 9:02 p.m., a single vehicle rollover accident occurred on Route 196 in the town of Kingsbury. A 2004 BMW was traveling eastbound and had almost reached the hamlet of Adamsville.

The driver, 20-year-old Steven Sharp of Granville, was operating the car at a high rate of speed and passed an unrelated vehicle, according to Sheriff Jeffrey Murphy.

Witnesses observed the operator crossing back and forth over the center line, and then the vehicle left the right hand side of the roadway, mounting an embankment and continuing in an easterly direction. 

The vehicle struck a rise on the embankment, causing it to become airborne, overturning and coming to rest facing in the opposite direction.

At this time, 21-year-old Malarie Entrup, formerly of Granville and currently living in Glens Falls, was partially ejected from the vehicle and suffered severe injuries. She was airlifted to Albany Medical Center, and both the driver and passenger, Shawn Hale, of Granville, were transported to Glens Falls Hospital for evaluation and treatment of minor injuries.

Entrup has since been released from the hospital.

Senior Investigator Bruce Hamilton said the sheriff’s department believes speed and alcohol are factors in the crash, but no charges have yet been filed. The accident is still being reconstructed by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Warren County Sheriffs Traffic Safety unit.

Hamilton said officials drew a blood sample from Sharp, but toxicology results will not be available for a few weeks.

Rescue units on the scene were the Kingsbury Fire Department assisted by the Hartford Fire Department, the Fort Edward Rescue Squad and Empire Ambulance Service.
