Accidents along 205 causing concern

By Kevin Limiti • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

State Route 205 in the town of Oneonta has had two fatal accidents in the past two months and is considered by many to be a dangerous road for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The road stretches past the Cooperstown All Star Village, where there is a lot of pedestrian traffic going across the road to the baseball field and is a high traffic area.

The latest fatal accident on Route 205 occurred on Sunday, Aug. 15, near Country Club Road. No arrests have been made yet.

Another accident occurred on Saturday, July 3, involving a hit-and-run driver, which led to the arrest of a Mount Vision man. Michael Goodspeed, 32, was charged with second degree vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.
