NORWICH – The glare of the afternoon sun may be to blame for a two-car collision which took place shortly after 3 p.m. on Tuesday at the intersection of Rt. 12 and Upper Ravine Road in the Town of Norwich.
According to Trooper Neil Case of the New York State Police, Betty Conant, 71, of Norwich was attempting to turn left into the Walmart parking lot from the southbound turn lane of Rt. 12 when she struck a passenger vehicle driving north on the state highway.
The second vehicle “overturned twice according to witnesses at the scene,” Case reported. The driver, 73 year-old Shirley Acly of Greene, was extricated from the vehicle by Norwich Fire and Rescue crews, who were the first on the scene.
