Niverville firefighters and Valatie Rescue Squad were called to the scene of a serious accident involving a flatbed tow truck on State Route 9 between Birch Road and Cortland Drive, Kinderhook, Monday, January 23 at 7:48 a.m. The flatbed truck, carrying one U.S. Postal Service truck and towing another, struck a tree head-on and the driver, Schuyler Burns, 22, of Loudonville, was trapped inside. Mr. Burns was driving the Gary’s Garage tow truck south to deliver the trucks in Valatie. First Assistant Chief Tim Stever requested heavy rescue 459 with extrication personnel to the scene and an engine to close traffic just south of the accident, according to Mike McCagg, who was on the scene. The truck’s cab collapsed and the front end was horse-shoed around the tree. The driver’s side tire was thrown about 10 feet from the truck. Valatie Rescue requested a Med-Flight chopper but was denied because of the light freezing drizzle falling at the time. Using two sets of Jaws and a ram, it took crews about 15 minutes to free the driver. Valatie Rescue took him to the Albany Medical Center for treatment of head and internal injuries. His condition is not known. Route 9 was open to just one lane of traffic, and then closed for a couple of hours while the State Police investigated. All units cleared the scene at 10:45 a.m.
