    Default Redfield popo crash

    On 2/4/18 at 2:52 p.m., Sgt. Timothy J. Brown, 52, of the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office was operating a 2015Ford pickup towing an enclosed trailer, both registered to the Oswego County Sheriff’s Office, southwest on CR 17 in the Town of Redfield rounding a curve when the vehicle collided with a 2014 International snowplow registered to the Town of Redfield that was traveling northeast and being operated by Eugene E. Babcock, 69, of 4791 CR 17, Redfield, NY. Slippery roads, failure to keep right and oversized vehicle seem to have been contributing factors. Sgt. Brown was transported by ambulance to Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse. Just want to know why we was not cited like other drivers that crashed.sounds to me to fast for conditions not staying right and careless driving.

    I think you and us all know the answer to that question
    brothers in arms, have discretion they can use at will, so?

    Even minor accidents in my area receive tickets. The officers say that they have no discretion in the matter.

    Just sucks you see tickets for headlamp out and this guy crashes and gets no tickets.bet if it was a normal joe we would have been cited a few times plus the plow driver would have back neck pain just saying.cops down here in pa they say to the tow truck driver (a buddie of mine)if the car is drivable (no paper work) no ticket.and beleive me they are not drivable but after cop leaves they tow it.

    County, town, or state plows there no different than groomers they have the right of way. Plows don't hit cars , cars hit plows.
    No B.S. here, just fact.Ask me.

    It's pretty ironic that on any given Saturday I would estimate 500+ trucks and trailers flock to the hill hauling sleds and you hear of maybe one accident a year related to hauling sleds in our area. People complain all year long about needing more LEO on the trails and the LEO crashes on their short drive back from doing so. Hands down if this was one of us we would have been ticketed for at least unsafe speed for conditions and probably for more.

    The cop that hit the pavilion in Stillwater last week got tickets so I guess he didn't know the right people?
