Kent Cop Has Close Call
Kent Police Sgt. James Oster had a close call over the weekend when his cruiser was nearly broadsided by a Dutchess County woman who drove through a red traffic signal at the intersection of Route 52 and Towners Road in Lake Carmel at 10:30 pm. Lt. Alex DiVernieri said Oster was forced to take evasive action or else the police vehicle would have been struck.
