CHAMPLAIN — An obstructed view from a windshield caused a three-car accident Dec. 12.

At about 8:04 a.m., Jesse Ribble, 24, of Chateaugay, was traveling eastbound on State Route 11 when he failed to see the cars in front of him stop at a red light at the intersection of Church Street, according to Chazy-based State Police.

Ribble subsequently hit the vehicle in front of him, driven by Courtney Miller, 35, of Plattsburgh, who then rear-ended a vehicle driven by Hughues Berger-Pelletier, 29, of Montreal, police said.

Police determined that road salt and sun glare on Ribble’s windshield obstructed his view, police said.

He was ticketed for view obstruction, unsafe tire and following too closely. 

Information about injuries was unavailable.
