Plattsburgh, NY (January 19, 2019) – Police say that the passenger of a vehicle was injured in a car accident that took place on Interstate 87 when a driver swerved out of the way of another car.
Police say that 83-year-old Rodney Estes was attempting to enter the interstate on the southbound ramp when he was suddenly cut off by an uninvolved vehicle that was also trying to get onto the ramp. This caused Este’s Explorer to strike the guardrail on the road.
Este’s vehicle then went to the other side of the road and struck the other guardrail. The vehicle came to rest on the southbound side of the road.
Estes did not receive injuries but his passenger, Alberta Estes, was taken by ambulance for the hospital with a variety of injuries.
