Auto Accident - Car upside down into Creek - Widmer Rd near All Angels Hill Rd. - New Hackensack Fire District : Town of Wappinger, N.Y. - On Saturday evening June 2nd at approximately 11:15 pm, the New Hackensack Fire Department and Town of Wappinger Ambulance/Transcare were dispatched for a reported auto accident with a vehicle off the roadway and upside down in a creek on Widmer Rd, just in from All Angels Hill Rd. First arriving units found a Subaru Legacy upside down in the shallow creek bed and the adult male driver who was the only occupant, was found standing near his vehicle. He appeared uninjured and had self extricated himself from the vehicle. Unable to make his way to the roadway due to the terrain and other factors, FD personnel lowered a roof ladder off the bridge and descended the 10 foot drop down into the creek bed and assisted the driver up  to the roadway where he was evaluated by EMS personnel.  The driver refused medical attention and was subsequently taken into custody by the Dutchess County Sheriffs Department for DWI. It appeared that the driver failed to negotiate the curve in the roadway, contacting and riding a guardrail which caused the car to become airborne and then finally landing upside down in the shallow creek bed 10 feet below. New Hackensack Fire personnel worked for approximately an hour recovering spilled vehicle fluids that had entered the water and stood by while the vehicle was removed from the creek bed. Ironically there was another accident at the same location a week ago. In this accident, a new Ford pick up truck struck a tree and was destroyed. The driver in this accident was also uninjured and arrested for DWI.
