Well Drilling Truck Overturns In Delaware County

Posted: Updated:


Delaware County Sheriff’s on Tuesday afternoon responded to a report of a utility truck overturned on State Highway 28 in the Town of Meredith.


A Sterling Well Drilling Truck operated by 47-year-old Michael R. Lutz of Red Hook, New York was overturned in the area of the Meredith-Delhi Town line, blocking the east and westbound lanes of travel on SR#28.

Police revealed that while traveling around a curve in an easterly direction on State Highway 28, the truck exited the roadway on the right shoulder. After re-entering the roadway, the truck began to skid sideways and overturned on its right side.

The truck then proceeded to skid easterly on its side for approximately 100 feet before coming to rest.

The driver of the truck was uninjured as a result of the collision.

The truck was later removed from the roadway by Gerster’s Tow Company.

Lutz was issued traffic tickets for making an unsafe lane change and failure to display a license plate; both returnable to Meredith Town Court at a later date.

Deputies were assisted at the scene of the accident by members of the Meredith Fire Department, Delhi Fire Department, and the New York State Department of Transportation.
