BELLMONT — At least one person was injured in a one-car accident Jan. 8.
Bernice A. Trottier, 86, of Merrill was driving southeast on State Route 374 near Bellis Road in the Town of Bellmont shortly before 1 p.m. when her vehicle drifted onto the west shoulder of the road and exited the lane of travel, driving through snow and slush, which caused the vehicle to go off the road and strike a guardrail and a tree on the west shoulder, Plattsburgh-based State Police said.
The car came to rest facing west on top of the guardrail, police said.
Trottier was taken to Alice Hyde Medical Center where she was treated and released.
