SHERBURNE – A Sherburne man and his associate where traveling to work Thursday morning when suddenly a van driven by a Binghamton man swerved across the yellow line and into their path.
Driver James Presnell, 62, and his employee Kim Slater, 51, both from Sherburne were traveling to Shawler Brook Rd. in their company pacing vehicle, a 1996 F-350, used to follow oversized loads moving along the highway. Presnell is the owner of the trailer moving company J&C Mobile Home Moving and was on his way to do an assessment at a local residence.
At around 10 a.m., the men said, while they were heading North on State Highway 12 less then a quarter mile from the Rt. 12 B divide, a green 2000 Ford van heading south on the highway failed to negotiate a curve and came across the yellow line.
