Police start criminal investigation into fatal accident


State Police received the report of the accident at 8:46 p.m. According to the U.S. Naval Observatory, sunset on Monday was at 8:22 p.m., followed by twilight until 8:57.

Trombly, who was alone in the vehicle, was driving home, according to Bureau of Criminal Investigation Senior Investigator Tracey Eggleston, but police have not released his whereabouts before the accident.

Poissant was taken to CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh in critical condition and then transferred to Fletcher Allen, where she died from her injuries.


Carrie Bushey of Champlain, who knew Poissant, said Tuesday that she left behind three young sons and her husband, Matthew.

“She was a great mother,” Bushey said. “She was fun. She had a great sense of humor.”

Poissant had just been promoted to a managerial position at the Champlain McDonald’s restaurant last week, said Shift Manager Mike Marcellus, who had worked there with her for the last six months or so.

She was born in Montreal on May 4, 1986, the daughter of Darren Reynolds and Angeline Tanguay.
