COOPERSTOWN – A Pathfinder Village transport van was involved in accident in the Town of Otsego, Lori Grace, director of development at Pathfinder, confirmed a few minutes ago.
According to Rob O’Brien, Otsego County 911 operator, state police and and Cooperstown Fire Department responded to the scene of a two-car accident at the intersection of Route 205 and Route 80 in the Town of Otsego at 2:17 p.m. this afternoon.
The van had “multiple occupants,” and ambulances transported seven to Bassett Hospital. According Karen Huxtable-Hooker, media relations director, the hospital was under a “Mass Casualty” code, which was “to assure that the hospital had the resources on hand to respond to the number of patients being transported to Bassett Medical Center’s emergency department.”
Huxtable said that all of the injuries appear are relatively minor, but some patients are still being assessed.
