WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A motorist attempting to avoid a garbage can in the roadway on Route 129 in Cortlandt triggered a multi-vehicle accident that left one woman with injuries.

First-responders from the Croton-on-Hudson Fire Department and paramedics from Ossining were dispatched at 8:45 a.m. on Wednesday morning to a stretch of Route 129 near the Croton Dam, where there were reports of an accident involving three vehicles.

According to officials, with the help of witnesses, it was determined that the first motorist stopped when there was a garbage can left in the roadway, which prompted the driver behind to stop. A third vehicle was then unable to stop in time, striking the middle car, which then hit the first.

The second driver was injured in the crash.

Firefighters from Croton shut down all traffic in the roadway while paramedics treated the injured woman, cleaning up spilled fluids in the process. Approximately 90 minutes later, the roadway was re-opened to traffic.

The condition of the injured female was not immediately available.
