Police Log: Dec. 16, 2013 — Personal-injury accident

SCHROON — Two people were injured in a three-car accident near mile marker 92 on Interstate 87 Sunday afternoon.

At about 2:52 p.m., Tyler J. Blaise, 20, of Keeseville, was driving northbound in whiteout conditions when he attempted to pull over to the right shoulder of the road because of poor visibility, according to Lewis-based State Police.

A second vehicle, driven by Neil Burdo, 44, of Plattsburgh, struck the rear of Blaise’s vehicle, pushing it into the guard rail and subsequently into the roadway. A third vehicle, driven by Elizabeth Polak, 57, of Milton, Vt., veered left to avoid Blaise’s car and lost control, then veered right and struck Burdo’s car, police said.

A passenger in Blaise’s car was transported to Elizabethtown Hospital for observation and Polak was transported to Glens Falls Hospital, also for observation, police said.

All vehicles were towed from the scene.
