Photo: SUV hit trees on Bozenkill Road in Altamont

The Enterprise — Elizabeth Floyd Mair 
Police and firefighters cut away branches and take photos at the scene of a one-vehicle accident on Bozenkill Road late Monday morning. Altamont Fire Chief Paul Miller said the SUV, with only a driver, had been coming down the hill from Knox, toward the village of Altamont, and had gone off the road and hit trees. Miller said he could not confirm if the person had been killed until the coroner arrived. He had not seen any skid marks to indicate braking, Miller said, “but then with the anti-lock brakes nowadays, you don’t see any.” Asked if there had been other fatal accidents in the area, he said, “Not in 30 years.”
