QUEENSBURY, N.Y. - Officials in Warren County report a 32-year-old female was pronounced dead at the scene of a one-car accident in Queensbury.
The Warren County Sheriff's Office says the accident happened on Corinth Road, just west of the intersection of VanDusen Road around 3:45 a.m. Friday.
The victim Trudy Chesney of Hudson Falls, was driving a 2000 Ford pick-up truck westbound on Corinth Road when she failed to negotiate a left hand turn and exited the highway, the Sheriff's Office says.
Her vehicle struck a guide rail and became airborne. The vehicle sheered off a utility pole, struck several trees, and came to rest upside down over the embankment.
Investigators say Chesney was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, and was found by officers in a creek and under a tree that had been knocked down by the impact. She was in the car alone.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
A power pole was sheered in half and lines are down as a result of the crash. National Grid is on the scene.
