Slick road causes car crash - GFD - 10/28/2008


Slick road causes car crash

GOSHEN - Combine temperatures hovering around freezing with a light rain and what do you get?  Slick roadways.

The driver of this vehicle was heading eastbound on Route 9 when he lost control and skidded across the roadway.  The accident happened around 7 p.m. just east of Old Goshen Road.   When firefighters arrived on scene, the driver had already exited the vehicle and refused medical treatment.  The force of the crash was enough to cause the car's airbags to deploy and crack the utility pole which had to be replaced by National Grid crews.  The car sustained moderate front end damage.

From left to right, FF Phil Judd, FF Jason Dyer and Jr. FF Jonathan Schwaiger take direction from Fire Chief Sue Labrie.  Firefighers pried open the hood and disconnected the battery.
