A two-vehicle accident on Main Street early Saturday morning, September 20, closed a section of the road to through traffic for about two hours as police, fire, and environmental crews investigated the collision and worked to clean up an estimated 100-gallon diesel fuel spill caused by the crash.
About ten hours later, emergency crews were reactivated after some West Street residents smelled diesel fuel, which was then found floating on the surface of a stream that passes through their neighborhood.

Hook & Ladder firefighters had to pop the door on this four-door sedan in order to get the driver out after a motor vehicle accident on Sunday Street last week. The car had initially come to rest on its passenger side following the accident, but passersby pushed the vehicle onto its wheels before first responders arrived on the scene.
