On Sunday morning at approximately 10am, 911 was alerted to a severe single car accident at Route 9 and Old Albany Post Road. According to witnesses a minivan containing three women veered off of Route 9, onto the shoulder, failed to navigate the curve near the Bird and Bottle Inn sign and crashed through the guardrail. The van hit the bottom of a culvert head-on and came to rest upside down in a small creek, entrapping the three occupants. Firefighters and EMS were dispatched from Garrison Fire Company, and when the severity of the incident became apparent calls for mutual aid went out to Cold Spring Fire Company, North Highlands and Continental Village.
The Cold Spring Fire Company operated on Route 9 near Papa John’s Restaurant, securing a landing zone for a StatFlight helicopter.
