Close Call

My husband and I were driving down Ostrander Road in Warren around noon today when a large tree fell across the road about three feet in front of our car. Shaken, we tried to back up only to find that a telephone pole had broken off and fallen behind us, along with phone and power lines. Our car was blocked in but we were able to walk to safety while we waited for the state police, fire department, and NYSEG to arive. It was an extremely close call and we feel lucky that nobody was injured. Thank you to the state police, Richfield Springs Volunteer Fire Department, and NYSEG for their quick resonse.
