Posted: Updated:

HEBRON, N.Y. – State Police say 43-year-old Lisa D. Martin, of North Adams, Mass., was killed in a three-car crash that occurred in Washington County Saturday night.

Police say five others were injured in the crash, which occurred just before 10 p.m. on State Route 22 near the intersection of Dorence Lane.

After a preliminary investigation, police say that it appears that Ora Roaix, 44, of Granville, was traveling south on State Route 22 when the vehicle crossed into the northbound lane and struck a second vehicle head on, killing Martin.

Logan Hall, a pedestrian traveling south on State Route 22, he came upon the accident and stopped to assist victims Mark L. Mattison, 44, of South Glens Falls, and Roaix. Hall was standing next to Roaix's vehicle, which came to rest on its side across both lanes when a third vehicle approached.

The third vehicle, operated by 87-year-old Dorothy Brace, of West Pawlet, Vt., came over the crest of the hill and could not stop in time to avoid hitting Roaix's vehicle. When they collided, her vehicle struck Hall.

Roaix and Mattison were transported to Albany Medical Center by Med Flight. Lois E. Nelson, 87, of Granville, who was a passenger in Brace's vehicle, and Hall were transported to Glens Falls Hospital by ambulance. Brace was treated at the scene by emergency personnel.

According to county officials, the crash also closed a stretch of the road for several hours overnight while crews worked at the scene on the Hebron town line. Route 22, between County Road 29 and Dorance Road, was closed from just before 10:30 p.m. until about 6:50 Saturday morning.

Assisting the New York State Police at this scene were the Washington County Sheriff's Department, the Granville Police Department, Granville and Hebron Fire Departments, and EMS from Fort Ann, Granville, Fairhaven and Salem.  

New York State Police Accident Reconstruction is also assisting in this investigation. The preliminary investigation found no sign of alcohol involvement and the circumstances surrounding the accident continue to be investigated.
