Auto Carrier driver makes costly error in Haverstraw

Postby bellstbarn » Wed Apr 12, 2017 7:05 pm

lohud.com is running a story of an auto carrier getting split in two about 4:30 p.m. today, 4.12.2017, on New Main Street, Haverstraw, NY, near 9W and the old depot. This is on the River Line, where highway 9W parallels the track. WCBS 880 also mentioned this. No indication given of train designation or power. No indication of injuries.

At least it was not a full load of autos,that remaining car will be totaled out.

There's work on 9W right nearby tying up traffic with only one lane open. I'm sure that was a factor.
