CHAZY — A Champlain resident was injured Feb. 21 in a one-car accident.

Shortly before 10:49 p.m., Matthew F. Smithey, 30, of Champlain was driving southbound on Fiske Road in Chazy when he lost control of the car and struck a snow embankment off the east shoulder of the road, State Police said.

Smithey’s car overturned and struck three large boulders, coming to rest on its passenger’s side, police said.
