XNG Truck Off Route 28

BULLETIN

XNG Truck

Off Route 28

SCHUYLER LAKE – An XNG truck is off Route 28 south of Schuyler Lake at this hour, at least the third or fourth since a “virtual pipeline” has been trucking natural gas from Northeast Pennsylvania to a Little Falls processing plant last February.

According to reports, the accident happened at 3 p.m.

Roadblocks  have been set up at the blinker in Schuyler Lake, and at Oaksville and Cattown, with tie-ups extending almost at far as Fly Creek.

Fire departments from Fly Creek, Schuyler Lake and Richfield Springs are at the scene, as well as New York State fire officials and representatives of XNG, the Boston-based company whose trucks are making some 80 trips a day through Otsego County.

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.”

RUNS OFF RT. 205

RIG SENT ON WAY, ACTIVIST SAYS

A second XNG natural-gas carrier has driven off Route 205, according to Bill Huston, an activist from the Binghamton area, the last of three trucks driving in tandem.  First call went out at 6:30 p.m. last night.   “The third in the group was driving too fast up the hill, lost control and had to drive into a ditch yards away from the accident that occurred just months ago,” Huston wrote in an email.  Emergency responders were dispatched to the scene, but the truck was pulled back onto the pavement and sent on its way, he added.  The photo was taken by a emergency responder called to the scene about 9 a.m., Huston said.  The mishap is in the same vicinity at a rig that went off the road and toppled over in September, he added.
