Early Morning Car Accident Hits Close to Home - GFD - 02/22/2007


Early morning accident hits close to home

GOSHEN - Goshen Fire, Police and Highland Ambulance personnel responded to this single car motor vehicle accident this morning at 6:57AM.  The driver was heading eastbound when he lost control of the vehicle, skidded through the Goshen Fire Dept parking lot over an open culvert and down an embankment into an adjacent field.

The driver of this Ford Explorer was taken to Cooley Dickenson hospital in Northampton with minor injuries.  He received prompt attention because Highland Ambulance personnel, who use the Goshen firehouse as their base of operations, were already at the station for duty.


While Route 9 did remain open, emergency vehicles and caution signs controlled traffic around the scene while two tow trucks wrangled the car back to the pavement.

Goshen Fire Department personnel protected the scene by deploying this emergency signage on the curve in the road just in front of Dresser's Garage.

Deputy Chief Rick Clark sizes up the accident scene in front of Vogel's field on Route 9.
