COOPERSTOWN – CCS basketball star Julie Ford is recovering at home after she was airlifted to Albany from an accident scene last Friday.
According to Nate Reigel, State Police public information officer, Ford was driving the car southbound on Wiley Town Road around noon when she hit a patch of black ice and slid 100 feet before striking a tree on the northbound shoulder.
Ford was “in and out of consciousness” at the scene, and her sister, Abby, a passenger, called 911, according to a Facebook post made by their mother, Amy Hurtubise Ford.
