Highland Ambulance personnel transported the driver of this Subaru Forrester to Cooley Dickinson Hospital this morning. Reports from the scene indicate that the Subaru was traveling westbound on Route 9 in front of George Propane when it crossed the centerline and collided with the back end of a dump truck owned by the Town of Goshen. Both vehicles ended up in the snow bank on the eastbound side of the road approximately 200 feet apart. Damage to the vehicles was significant enough to require tow trucks from Cichy’s Garage in Williamsburg and Liebenow’s Garage in Cummington. Tim Pease, Goshen Highway Superintendent, was behind the wheel of the town truck.
Members of the Goshen Fire and Goshen Police Departments coordinated efforts to re-direct traffic around the accident scene during the morning commute. Route 9 was closed down for approximately one hour to protect personnel on scene when the rising sun made it difficult for eastbound traffic to see.
