Car, SUV Spin Off Rt. 28

Mile From Cooperstown

Traffic is tied up on Route 28 south of Cooperstown at this hour, between Smith Ford and the Toddsville turnoff, after two southbound cars appear to have collided and come to rest, facing south, on the east side of the roadway. A black Ford sedan was on the north property line of Judith Brown CPA's offices, 5082 Route 28, while a tan Ford SUV was a few properties north, in front of that red cape. Cooperstown EMS and a fire truck were at the scene, with Fire Chief Jim Tallman directing emergency activites. Sheriff's deputies were investigating. It didn't appear that either drivers were injured. Traffic was being guided through, north bound and south bound alternately. Kirn's wreckers had just arrived about 10 minutes, awaiting the go-ahead to remove the involved vehicles. While neither vehicle seemed too seriously damaage, debris was scattered along the pavement.
