Saratoga police identify pedestrian hit and killed on Route 50
SARATOGA SPRINGS Police have released the name of a woman who was killed Friday when she was struck by a driver who police say was drunk.
She was Jamie Jo McBride, 55, of Mukilteo, Wash.
McBride was struck at 3:40 p.m. by a pickup truck driven by Paul Nicholson II, 28, of Marion Avenue, Saratoga Springs. She suffered chest and head injuries and was taken to Saratoga Hospital and then transferred to Albany Medical Center, where she died around 8 p.m., police said last week.
McBride was crossing Ballston Avenue when Nicholson turned onto Ballston Avenue from Hamilton Street in his 2003 Ford F-250 pickup truck and hit her.
He was charged afterward with vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
The accident investigation is continuing, police said this morning.
