An accident in Chaumont sent two people to the hospital and shut down a portion of State Route 12E for more than an hour Tuesday night.
Jefferson County sheriff's deputies say 66 year old Karen Tibbits of Three Mile Bay was driving a Jeep when it veered off the side of the road and traveled about 200 feet before coming to rest.
Tibbits and a passenger, 89 year old Helen Schreiber, also of Three Mile Bay, were taken to Samaritan Medical Center. Another passenger, 91 year old Richard Schreiber, was not injured.
Officials are still investigating what caused the crash.
