Traffic tied up on Clinton Street for property damage accident

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, accident.

Traffic is being diverted off Clinton Street to East Avenue while Batavia PD deals with a two-car, non-injury motor-vehicle accident.

Batavia Fire Department is requested to the scene.

UPDATE 4:23 p.m.: Initial indication is a town snow plow was stopped southbound on Clinton and was allowing a Haul-4-Less truck to make a left-hand turn from East Avenue onto Clinton. A semi coming up behind the plow truck may not have seen the plow truck stopped and tried going around the plow truck, hitting the Haul-4-Less truck. No injuries. Heavy wreckers had to be called in for the disabled trucks and traffic was blocked in both directions.

Related, local law enforcement officers are currently working a handful of property damage accidents in various parts of the county. All seem to be weather related.

The guy in that yellow truck just lost his job if he's a company driver. Traveling the expressways between Webster and Le Roy every day, I get so see every type of trucker on the road. Fedex drivers are always way over the speed limit, this I would attest to. Many truckers maintain their distance and hold their lane. I applaud those drivers. A few other truckers, though, they steer their truck through traffic like they're in their SUV. They tailgate, they're aggressive and they often use no signals. I've covered a lot of miles in almost every state in the country including Alaska and not all truckers are professionals. I'm not saying this one isn't, but ....
