State Police said a Thursday afternoon crash in Franklin has left two teens in serious condition.
According to a media release, troopers from the Oneonta station were dispatched at 4:31 p.m. to the area of Walley Road in the town of Franklin. Troopers said they found a 1996 Chevy pick-up truck with a 17-year-old male driver and 14-year-old male passenger crashed into a tree.
Troopers said an investigation revealed that speed was a contributing factor when the 17-year-old lost control of the vehicle on a curve on Wally Road, spun off the roadway and struck the tree. Both occupants were transported by a LifeNet helicopter to Albany Medical Center.
Troopers said the accident remains under investigation.
