Not Guilty Plea for Rensselaer Man in Fatal Cohoes Crash

A Rensselaer man accused of speeding in a crash in June of 2016 in Cohoes has been found not guilty. 

William Lamb had been facing vehicle and traffic violations for allegedly speeding on Route 787 and killing 16 year old Brittany Knight at the Bridge Avenue intersection. 

Judge Thomas Marcelle found there was no evidence to determine how fast Lamb was driving.  

Cohoes mayor Shawn Morse has long pushed for improvements to that stretch of 787.

In December, DOT unveiled a $15 million reconstruction plan for 787. 

Officials say when finished, it will be a true boulevard with trees in the median, and a lower speed limit.
