More than a dozen first responders were at the scene of a single-vehicle crash on Route 312 in Southeast Tuesday evening.
It happened near Prospect Hill Road at about 8:25 p.m. The driver, the sedan's lone occupant, extricated himself and refused medical attention, according to Brewster Fire Department officials. They were unable to say what caused the accident.
Several fire trucks and Putnam County Sheriff's Office patrol cars sat along the roadway with flashing lights. Traffic came to a stop shortly after the crash as emergency responders arrived. They began to clear the scene about 15 minutes later.
