GANSEVOORT, N.Y. (AP) - A 43-year-old upstate New York man has been charged after state police say he intentionally rammed his pickup truck into another vehicle, nearly hitting a trooper and four other people.

Troopers were called to a home in the Saratoga County hamlet of Gansevoort on Sunday for a report of a domestic disturbance. While they were conducting interviews with witnesses, Joseph Golden of Greenfield Center returned to the scene and drove his truck into the back of a parked pickup.

The trooper, a 13-year-old and three adults were nearly hit by the parked truck as it was pushed forward.

Police say Golden fled the scene in his truck and hit another vehicle on a nearby road where he was taken into custody.

He’s being held in the county jail. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
