LEEDS — A Columbia County man was taken to Albany Medical Center following a one-car accident Friday night in Leeds, Steven Nevel, public information officer for state police Troop F, said Monday.

Nicholas Miller, 32, of Greenport, complained of head pain following the crash, Nevel said.

At about 7:10 p.m., Miller was driving a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta east on Route 23 in the passing lane when the car struck two road signs and the guardrail, and continued east, rolling over multiple times and coming to rest in the westbound lanes of Route 23, on the other side of the guardrail, Nevel said.

Miller told police an unknown and uninvolved motor vehicle was attempting to move from the driving lane into the passing lane, into the path of his car, which he swerved to avoid, causing the crash, Nevel said.

Greene County 911 sent Leeds Fire Company and Catskill Ambulance to the scene.

One westbound lane of Route 23 was closed while crews worked.

The car was towed from the scene.

State police investigated.

All firefighters were back in service at 7:50 p.m.
