Au Sable, NY (May 13, 2019) – At approximately 3:20 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, May 12th, state police were summoned to the scene of a crash between a car and a motorcycle that took place at the intersection of Telegraph Road and Fuller Road. An investigation into the events that led to this accident is currently being conducted.
According to police, 18-year-old Hayden S. Bell, of Plattsburgh, and one passenger identified as 16-year-old Shiann L. Provost, of Peru, were traveling west along Fuller Road on a 2012 Kawasaki motorcycle.
