The accident, which occurred around 9:45 a.m, was caused when the driver attempted to execute a turn on Clinton Street and he lost control, sendng the vehicle over the edge. A tree stump and some power lines were torn up, but neither of the car’s two occupants were injured. At this hour, Oneonta fire department crews are on the scene as they wait for NYSEG to arrive, but traffic has not been disrupted. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
