FIRST ON 13: Bill introduced requiring bridge warnings on GPS
Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, D-Schenectady, is introducing a bill requiring any GPS app or program offered in New York to provide low bridge warnings.
Nicole Parisi, Santabarbara’s chief of staff, said the bill was drafted the day a truck hit the Maple Ave. bridge in Glenville and exploded.
The driver received serious burns on his hands and face.
Meanwhile, Glenville is considering suing both CSX and Canadian Pacific Railway, the companies that own the bridges on Maple Avenue and Glenridge Road, respectively.
Town Supervisor Chris Koetzle said the town board will discuss that option in the new year.
