Potsdam, NY (November 08, 2020) – On Thursday, November 5, New York State Police reported to the scene of a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Old Close Road and State Route 11 in the town of Potsdam.

Initial reports indicate that at about 12:30 p.m.,  an eastbound 2011 Honda CRV, being driven by Donna Blanchard, 72, a resident of Potsdam, was stopped at a stop sign on State Route 11, waiting to make a lefthand turn onto Old Close Road.  

As Blanchard waited for traffic to pass, a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer, being driven by Miranda Vari, 36, a resident of Norwood, collided with the back of the CRV. The Trailblazer then veered off the roadway and ran into an embankment and flipped over, throwing Vari from the vehicle.
