Car Accident Shuts Route 9W in Valley Cottage

Road closed for utility repairs.

A car accident on Route 9W in Valley Cottage shut the road to traffic early this morning and detours continue as work continues to repair damaged utility equipment, according to Clarkstown police.

Police said a car struck a utility pole at about 3:30 a.m. on a hilltop section of Valley Cottage between Christian Herald Road in Upper Nyack and Lake Road in Valley Cottage. The damage required the road to be closed in both directions for the accident clean up and utility repairs.

Police are uncertain when the road will re-open, but expect it to open sometime this morning.
