Details, Details

Names are slippery things, especially when you're in a hurry. This was up on the CapitalNews 9 web site yesterday after a fatal accident on the Thruway:
State police said Tim Cavanaugh was travelling southbound on the Thruway when he lost control of the vehicle and went through the median. His car hit a flatbed tractor trailer on the other side of the Thruway.
It seems that the eager beavers at CN9 mixed up the name of Albany County Coroner Tim Cavanaugh with that of accident victim Steven Rossi. They later fixed it. I hope somebody checked first to make sure Rossi wasn't the fire chief or one of the troopers on the scene.
