The Register-Star reported this afternoon about a car crash that happened this morning on Route 66: "2 hospitalized after head-on collision." What the article doesn't mention is that one of the drivers, Rosa Acheson, is a reporter for the paper. The article indicates that, according to the sheriff's office, Acheson crossed the center line to avoid a small animal--understandable, indeed commendable--but in so doing collided with an oncoming car. The driver of that car is now in critical condition at Albany Medical Center. Acheson suffered a broken ankle. A terrible situation for those involved, and our thoughts and prayers are with them both.
