Altona, NY (August 23, 2019) – At approximately 7:40 a.m. on Wednesday, August 21st, State Police arrived at the scene of a serious head-on collision that occurred in the town of Altona. The incident was reported to have happened near 4028 State Route 190 and ultimately involved four vehicles.

According to authorities, 18-year-old Abigail D. Marshall, of Peru, was heading north along SR 190 in a 2001 Honda CRV when she entered the southbound lane for unknown reasons. The Honda sideswiped two vehicles before colliding head-on with a 2018 Ford Fusion being driven by 48-year-old Rita A. Charland.

Medical crews were summoned to the scene alongside police as they worked to assist the injured parties. Both Marshall and Charland were transported to the University of Vermont Healthcare Network at the Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh. Marshall was admitted with multiple brain bleeds as Charland was reported to have sustained chest and hip injuries

Charland was airlifted to the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, VT, where she is now listed in critical condition. The investigation continues at this time.

Our thoughts are with both Abigail D. Marshall and Rita A. Charland, as well as their families at this time. We hope for their full recoveries.
