HEBRON, N.Y. -- A North Adams woman was killed Saturday night following a multi-car crash in Washington County near the Vermont border.
According to a press release from the New York State Police, Lisa Martin, 43, of North Adams, was traveling north on Route 22 when her vehicle was struck by a southbound car driven by Ora L. Roaix, 44, of Granville, N.Y.
Police said a preliminary investigation of the accident indicates that the vehicle in which Roaix was driving crossed the median and struck Martin's vehicle head-on. The accident happened at about 9:53 p.m.
Martin was declared dead at the scene by Washington County coroner James Garieny. A passenger in the vehicle driven by Martin, Mark L. Mattison, 44, of South Glens Falls, was transported to Albany Medical Center by Med Flight helicopter.
Roaix was also transported to Albany Medical Center. The extent of their injuries was not immediately available.
Moments after the crash, Logan Hall, the driver of a third car, also heading south on Route 22, stopped to see if he could assist in the accident. He was standing next to the Roaix vehicle, which was sitting on its side across both lanes.
A fourth vehicle, driven by Dorothy Brace, 87, of West Pawlet, N.Y., was northbound and came upon the Roaix vehicle. Brace's car smashed into Roaix's car, which in turn struck Hall.
Hall was transported to Glens Falls Hospital by ambulance. Brace and her passenger, 87-year-old Lois Nelson, of Granville, N.Y., were treated and released at the scene.
The investigation is being carried out by the New York State Police, the Washington County Sheriff's Department and the Granville Police Department. Also on the scene were the Granville and Hebron fire departments and EMTs from Fort Ann, Granville, Fairhaven and Salem.
State police said a preliminary investigation revealed that alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the accident.
The accident remains under investigation.
