Minor injuries reported in early morning rollover accident in Stafford

posted by Howard B. Owens in accident, Stafford.

A driver says he may have fallen asleep while on Route 63 in Stafford at 2:13 a.m., leading to a rollover accident.

The truck driven by Cody A. Paxton, 21, of New Providence, Pa., is owned by Norfolk Southern Railway, and it came to rest on all four wheels.

Paxton suffered minor injuries and was transported by Mercy EMS to Strong Memorial Hospital.

The accident was investigated by Deputy Joseph Graff.

I am very thankful that he wasn't hurt too bad and that it wasn't his personal truck. My only regret is that there is not a YouTube video of it happening in real time, although the pictures give me enough info to see it in my mind.
It's like the time I jumped a fence while too high and broke through the ice into a slow moving creek that I didn't even know was there. (Attica, circa 1973)
I walked to my sister's apartment in a snowstorm while soaking wet and missing one shoe. I still wonder where the pigs were, I should have been busted.
No more Darvocet and shots of Bourbon for me.

My son came upon the accident on his way to work shortly after it happened and called it in and stayed with the driver until emergency services arrived.

George, as far as you comment on regret not seeing it as it happened on YouTube Is probably one of the stupidest and most insensitive comments I've ever read on the The Batavian.

Mr Dorf, this is not the age of Aquarius any longer. We have entered the age of Dontcarius, although I have never felt that way myself. For thirty five years I have felt that I escaped a world of over critical tight asses and I thank whatever element of nature that enabled me to do so. My God or not, I am in love with Batavia but only 45% of her people.
Jack? I still love you but you really need to think about becoming a liberal.
If he was seriously hurt I would have shut my annoying fingertips down. I'm an asshole but not a mean asshole ever, or at least that is not my meaning.

George, I love your comments and hope you continue. In fact, I hope you escalate the number of comments to the point that you remove all doubts that people might have about you.
