MARYLAND, N.Y. (AP) — A car filled with college students has crashed into an upstate New York highway median and rolled over, killing one person and injuring five.

State police say the crash happened at 4 a.m. Saturday in the town of Maryland.

Police say the students from the State University of New York at Cobleskill were headed east on Interstate 88 when the vehicle entered the center median, rolled over and came to rest in the west lane. A westbound vehicle struck the car.

One student died later at Albany Medical Center. SUNY Cobleskill officials identified him as 19-year-old Douglas Alvarez, of Mamaroneck. The other five were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
