Albany Woman Got More Than A Traffic Ticket

An Albany woman is getting more than just a speeding ticket after she allegedly led police on a 10 mile car chase through the Albany area.

Nancy S. Esmay
East Greenbush Police Department

In a press release from the East Greenbush Police Department, 53-year-old Nancy S. Esmay was stopped on Columbia Turnpike for allegedly speeding. She allegedly didn’t cooperate with the police and abruptly drove away.

Other local police agencies, including New York State Police, were called in after Esmay allegedly kept going and refused to stop. This was during the afternoon commute on Wednesday. All police agencies involved attempted several times to pull Esmay over, but the chase continued between East Greenbush and Watervliet.

The chase ended on 23rd Street and 12th Avenue in Watervliet, after Esmay allegedly crashed her car. She also allegedly damaged several other vehicles during the chase.

Esmay is facing a slew of charges including Unlawfully Fleeing Police In A Motor Vehicle, Reckless Endangerment Second Degree, Reckless Driving, Driving While Impaired By Drugs, Leaving The Scene Of An Accident and others. Esmay was sent to Rensselaer County Jail where she awaits for further court proceedings.
