COOPERSTOWN – Even though she herself was suffering from a concussion, Abby Ford was able to call 911 following the Saturday crash that left her sister, Julie, the driver, injured and in and out of consciousness.

“Abby managed to dial 911,” said their mother, Amy. “It’s a miracle they were able to get the call through. Wiley Town Road never has cell service.”

A stranger, later identified as Dennis Brassaw, Cooperstown, was also driving down the road and stopped to wait with the girls until state troopers and EMS arrived. “We’re so grateful to him,” said Amy. “I went to the site of the accident today, and he was there and introduced himself.”
