PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh woman was transported to the hospital with minor injuries after a car accident Friday.
Shortly before 3:07 p.m., Sabrina Shae Lakomy, 17, of Plattsburgh took her foot off the brake of her white Toyota Celica to back out of a parking space in the Route 3 Rite Aid parking lot when she struck Kathleen J. Thorne, 73, who was walking behind the vehicle, Plattsburgh City Police Officer Robert Annis said.
Lakomy said her speed was about 0.5 mph when the accident occurred, Annis said.
Surveillance footage from the drug store appears to confirm Lakomy’s statement, he said.
Thorne was transported by the Plattsburgh City Fire Department to CVPH Medical Center after she complained of hip pain, Annis said.
