The scene of the truck rollover accident the morning of September 15th.

On September 15, 2017, the Huletts Landing Volunteer Fire Department responded to gravel truck rollover accident at the bottom of the Huletts hill on County Rt. 6 in Huletts Landing. The alarm sounded at approximately 8:40 a.m. in the morning. A significantly sized gravel truck, making a local delivery, rolled over at the bottom of the Huletts hill at the intersection of County Rt 6 and 6B. Thankfully there were no serious injuries, although the driver of the truck required medical assistance, initially provided by our HLVFC first responders.

The first responders stabilized the driver until the Skenesborough EMS team arrived at the scene. The victim was subsequently transported to the hospital for further medical evaluation. Both the Dresden Fire Company and units of the New York State Police were also at the scene. The front porch of the home adjacent to the scene of the accident sustained some damage from the wave of gravel spilling from the truck. Luckily at the time of the accident there were no vehicle or pedestrian activity at that crossroads, otherwise this incident could have had much greater tragic results. Here are some photos taken at the scene.

Many thanks to our Fire Company members for their quick response and for remaining on duty, well over four hours, for the major cleanup they performed in restoring the roadway back to safe passage.
