Emergency crews were dispatched for a reported rollover accident in Coeymans Hollow Monday night.

The call was dispatched at 8:45 p.m. on Monday, August 24th, as a vehicle on its roof on Blodgett Hill Road near Route 396 in Coeymans Hollow.

Upon the arrival of Assistant Chief Jody Burrows of the Coeymans Hollow Fire Department, he says he arrived to a car on its roof with debris including shattered glass, screws and various tools scattered across the roadway and the driver still in the car with their foot stuck underneath the steering wheel.

The Coeymans Hollow Fire Department was called to the scene with Ravena Rescue, Albany County Paramedics, Coeymans Police and Albany County Sheriff's Department.

Burrows says the car went off the roadway and in the embankment approximately 50 yards from where the vehicle came to a stop.

He said the driver was conscious and told him everything hurt everywhere.

"He was more worried about other people and his friends that possibly could or couldn't be here."

Chief Dan Contento of the Coeymans Police Department says the driver sustained minor injuries and was transported to Albany Medical Center.

It is unclear at the time whether there were other individuals in the vehicle, but Contento says the investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
