Delaware County Sheriff's Deputies investigated a property damage accident Monday morning on State Highway 28 in the Town of Meredith involving a loaded concrete truck owned by Cranesville Block Company of Oneonta. The accident resulted in the closure of State Highway 28 for approximately one and a half hours while the vehicle was removed. Deputies say the driver, 32 year old Anthony Barletta, of Oneonta, was traveling south on State Highway 28 when he took evasive action to avoid a collision with an unidentified northbound vehicle that had crossed the center line of the highway which resulted in the concrete truck leaving the roadway and coming to a rest on its side in the ditch adjacent to the southbound lane. No tickets were issued in relation to the accident. Deputies were also assisted at the scene by members of the Meridale Fire Department.
