BETHLEHEM — A rollover crash on Delaware Avenue on Saturday led to a foot chase and altercation, according to Bethlehem Police.

Police responded Saturday to the crash at 12:47 p.m. on Delaware Avenue near Longmeadow Drive in the town of Bethlehem.

Antonio Trivellotto, 24, of Schenectady, was driving westbound on Delaware Avenue at a high rate of speed when he rear ended another vehicle that was stopped at the intersection on Delaware Avenue, Bethlehem Police said in a statement.

“The force of the impact caused the vehicle that was rear ended to get pushed from the roadway into a utility pole and debris from the initial crash struck two other vehicles that were in the intersection,” according to police. “Trivellotto’s vehicle continued westbound, striking a tree and rolling over.”

Police say following the crash Trivellotto left the vehicle and fled the scene on foot. Officers tracked footprints in the snow and found Trivellotto on Canterbury Lane, police said.

“While officers were interviewing Trivellotto about the crash, he did punch one of the officers in the face,” police said.

The officer was not injured.

Trivellotto was taken to Albany Medical Center due to injuries sustained in the crash.

The crash is under investigation and charges are pending, police said.
