Tense Moments: Update
In a previous article I reported about an accident involving a pickup truck and stroller after the fireworks display in Plattsburgh City on the night of July 4th.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Pike and Bridge streets near the Campus Corner restaurant. The Plattsburgh Police Department didn't have an officer directing all the traffic and pedestrians leaving the area at that spot. The police and ambulance did quickly respond.
According to info from the Plattsburgh PD website blotter and a Press-Republican article the pickup truck driver was ticketed for not yielding the right of way to a pedestrian, in this case a woman pushing a stroller with two children. His truck had reportedly clipped the stroller.
The woman, Kristy Pulsifer, age 23, and the two children, William Pulsifer, age 4, and Lila Souliere, age 2 — all from Plattsburgh — had suffered bruises. No one else was injured. The police blotter says the incident occurred 22:12 (10:12 PM) on Pike Street. More details available through these links:
