CAROGA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – On Mother’s Day, in the late afternoon, the Caroga Lake Fire Company responded to a vehicle rollover in a driveway. According to firefighters, an SUV decided on its own to roll down a steep driveway and roll over between large boulders and trees.
The vehicle was leaking gas, which was controlled. The car was stabilized until a boom-type wrecker arrived and uprighted and removed it, after about three hours.
Due to the proximity to the house and leaking fuel, a foam handline was put into operation as a precaution. No injuries occurred to either residents or firefighters.
