Icy Road Caused Truck To Slide;

Situation Soon Righted, XNG Says

COOPERSTOWN – A spokesman for XNG said the truck incident Friday evening occurred when a driver, slowing on icy Route 205 north of Hartwick hamlet as the driver in front of him turned into a driveway, “slid partially off the road … and that was it.”

“There was no driver error,” said XNG’s Jon Pierce.  “There was no equipment failure.  There was no danger.  The truck was (soon) back on the roadway.”

The truck was not one of three in tandem, as reported earlier, but other XNG drivers, seeing a colleague in need of assistance, “stopped and tried to help.”
