Troopers from Collins investigate Cattaraugus County snowplow accident
DAYTON– On January 31st Troopers investigated a property damage accident on St Rte 62, just south of Markhams, involving a Cattaraugus County snow plow. At approximately 10:30pm, 61yr old Roy Smith of Randolph, was northbound on St Rte 62, en route back to the County Highway Barn in Markhams, when the snowplow he was driving started to slide towards the ditch on the east side of the highway. Smith was unable to bring the plow under control and went into the ditch. There were no injuries. Two heavy equipment tow trucks from Evans Mechanic in Angola and a county high lift responded to pull the plow out of the ditch.
