Police: Nor'Easter to Blame for Accidents

Sleepy Hollow Police are happy to report no snow-related incidents in last week's blotters, while Tarrytown had a few, particularly on the very steep Rosehill Avenue.

Any road problems with our Nor'Easter seemed to happen at its afternoon beginnings.

On Nov. 7 at 4:16 p.m., when the snow was only starting to accumulate, Tarrytown police received a call of a multi-car accident on the very steep Rosehill Avenue. On the scene they report numerous cars stuck on the roadway, and two separate accidents.

Two cars had been slipping down the hill and collided, with Lietenant William Herguth reporting no major damages. 

About a minute later, a car went off the road and hit a home’s stone wall, causing about 15 feet of extensive damage to the wall and the mailbox, but at least stopping the car from going any further. Stiloski’s called to remove vehicle. And DPW was requested to salt the road.

Then there was some bus trouble, both in our district and Irvington.

At 4:19 p.m., Irvington PD called to report a heavy traffic condition on Route 9 on South Broadway due to a school bus broken down in their district. Our officer reported heavy traffic but said things were moving along okay.

Another bus call from the TUFSD. At 6:24 p.m., the schools reported that one of its buses was involved in an accident on McKeel Avenue with no injuries. The police dispatcher advised that police were all involved in other incidents and the bus and other car involved should exchange information. The situation was clear when police arrive.

Later, there were a few electrical problems. 

At 8:59 p.m. that night, Tarrytown's Metro North station reported that a woman was stuck in the elevator at the platform. The fire department, along with MTA personnel were able to get the woman out of the elevator.

Finally, the Senior Center reported a loss of power at 7:10 a.m. the next morning. Con Ed and the recreation department were notified. So it seems our power troubles are not entirely behind us.
