Teen critical after motorcycle she was riding on collided with car

AuSABLE — A teen was listed as being in critical condition Monday following a motorcycle-car collision in the town of AuSable Sunday afternoon.

Police say Shiann L. Provost, 16, of Peru, was in critical condition at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington, Vermont, after she and 18-year-old Hayden S. Bell of Plattsburgh were thrown off a motorcycle at the intersection of Fuller and Telegraph roads. Bell allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a car being driven by Keeseville resident Keith J. Galarneau, 58.

Provost suffered a broken right arm and right leg, according to New York State Police. Bell was listed as being in fair condition, with a broken right leg and a broken left wrist. Both were transported to Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in Plattsburgh but later transferred to Burlington for treatment of what police described as “injuries to their extremities and internal injuries.” Galarneau was treated for cuts to his face and hands at the scene.

State Police responded to the scene of the collision at approximately 3:20 p.m. Sunday. They said their investigation revealed that Bell, driving a 2012 Kawasaki motorcycle, was traveling west on Fuller Road with Provost as a passenger as Galarneau traveled south in a 1995 Ford Mustang. Bell allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign and drove through the intersection, striking Galarneau’s car.

Bell and Provost were ejected from the motorcycle, police say.

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
