Locals injured in car accident near Malone

Two local residents were injured in a car accident near Malone yesterday.

Malone-based state police say the two-car motor vehicle accident occurred at about 4:15 p.m. Thursday on state Route 30.

According to troopers, 65-year-old Alec H. Friedman of Lake Placid and 49-year-old Joy A. Kasson of Saranac Lake were both driving south along the highway when high winds kicked up a cloud of dust.

The poor visibility caused the two vehicles to collide, police say.

The two drivers were transported to the Alice Hyde Medical Center in Malone for treatment. The condition of the two patients wasn't immediately available Friday morning.

WNBZ will provide more information as it becomes available.
