A Fort Edward man who died in a single-car accident after he allegedly fled a State Police DWI checkpoint on Saturday night is now identified as 23-year-old Vincent A. Mancuso.
According to police, Mancuso entered a police checkpoint on Hudson Falls Road in Moreau around 10:15 p.m. Saturday and was stopped.
Mancuso apparently left following their brief exchange. According to State Police, officers pursued the car while using their lights and sirens until they lost sight of it.
Mancuso was eventually discovered by a patrol on Ferry Boulevard in South Glens Falls. According to a preliminary inquiry, Mancuso exited the road after failing to negotiate a curve and hit a big tree.
Mancuso was taken out of the car and brought to the Glens Falls Hospital, where he later passed away, according to the police.
