Police Log: April 18, 2013 — Personal-injury accident


---- — NORTH ELBA — A Redford woman was injured in a one-car accident Sunday.

Shortly before 6 a.m., Katherine A. Black, 19, was traveling east on Route 86 in the Town of North Elba on slushy roads when she swerved to avoid striking an animal, Ray Brook-based State Police said.

Black drove off the roadway and then back on to it, continuing down the road, and then failed to negotiate a curve, police said. Her car went off the road, struck an embankment and overturned.

Black complained of pain in her right arm but refused medical attention, later going to a hospital via a private vehicle, police said.

She was ticketed for failure to keep right.
