According to a written release from the NYSP the results of their preliminary "(investigation) revealed Lottie M. Moody, 82 of Saranac Lake was operating a 2012 Jeep Compass motor vehicle westbound on State Route 86, when she failed to yield the right of way causing the 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle to strike the side of the vehicle ejecting both the driver and passenger off the motorcycle."

Emergency responders from Saranac Lake Fire and Rescue immediately rendered aid.

The driver of the motor vehicle and both the driver and passenger of the motorcycle were brought to Adirondack Health in Harrietstown, New York.

The passenger of the motorcycle was later transferred to Albany Medical Center for internal injuries.

Moody (the driver of the motor vehicle) was released later from Adirondack Health.

The driver and passenger of the motorcycle are still hospitalized but, police say, are in stable condition as of this posting.

Witnesses, drivers in the area at the time with dashcam footage, or anyone with information that may be helpful to the investigation should call police.
