---- — CHAMPLAIN — A Champlain teen was injured in a one-vehicle accident Friday morning. 

According to Chazy-based State Police, Mark A. Furman, 17, was driving north on Perry Mills Road near the intersection with North Star Road in Champlain at 9:32 a.m., when, he told police, something went wrong with his steering column, dragging his car off the road. 

Furman said he tried to correct the direction of his vehicle, and in doing so, over corrected, causing it to exit the roadway once again and crash into a telephone pole, according to police. 

He complained of pain to his right leg, neck and shoulder and was transported by Champlain EMS to CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh.

Furman was released from the hospital a short time later, police said, and was issued a ticket for unsafe exiting of a roadway.
