A North Tonawanda woman died in a crash early Thursday morning on the I-190 in which her vehicle rolled over after she tried to avoid two dogs in the roadway, according to the New York State Police.
Georgette M. Potter, 46, was pronounced dead at the scene by the Niagara County coroner after being ejected from her 2003 Jeep Wrangler near the Buffalo Avenue overpass in Niagara Falls.
Troopers out of the Niagara Falls State Police office responded to the crash just before 3 a.m. Investigators said that the vehicle was traveling south on the I-190 and attempted to avoid two dogs in the roadway, hitting both and ultimately causing the vehicle to overturn.
Troopers said Potter wasn't wearing a seat belt at the time of the collision.
The southbound I-190 was closed between Buffalo Avenue and the north Grand Island bridge from just after 3 a.m. to about 6:20 a.m. Thursday due to the accident.
