PLATTSBURGH — One person was injured in a one-car accident Wednesday.
Shortly before 8:39 a.m., Michelle L. Shanty, 37, of Gabriels was driving southwest on Route 3 in the Town of Plattsburgh and was approaching a left-hand curve in the road when the steering mechanism in her vehicle failed possibly due to a faulty tie rod, Plattsburgh-based State Police said.
Shanty was unable to control the vehicle and it exited the roadway via the north shoulder and struck a fence, police said.
No further information was available.
