Dump truck flips over in Berne after driver loses control

BERNE — On the afternoon of Feb. 24, Rensselaerville resident Doug Vogel, owner of Vogel’s Roll Off Services, lost control of his 1994 International Harvester garbage truck on Saw Mill Road in Berne and flipped the vehicle over as he tried to regain control, according to a press release from the Albany County Sheriff’s office. 

Vogel, 60, was taken from the scene with minor injuries by Helderberg Emergency Medical Services, the release said. He could not be reached for comment. 

After the call for the crash came in at 1:30 p.m., the sheriff’s office closed Saw Mill Road and reopened it by 3:45 the same afternoon, after the truck was recovered by Guilderland Towing and Recovery.
