NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WBEN) - A North Tonawanda woman is dead after an overnight rollover crash on the base of the North Grand Island Bridge.

The one-vehicle, rollover collision happened just before 3:00 in the morning on the 190 South at the Buffalo Avenue overpass in the City of Niagara Falls. It resulted in the closure of the roadway for several hours.

Georgette Potter, 46, of North Tonawanda, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her Jeep Wrangler was traveling south on the 190 and attempted to avoid two dogs in the roadway, but ultimately struck both and caused the vehicle to overturn.  

Potter was sitting on the buckled seatbelt at the time of the collision and was ejected from the vehicle.

State Police say the dogs involved in the crash were also pronounced dead at the scene.
