Voting continued after Fifth Avenue closed by police due to accident


Voting continued Tuesday afternoon at the Daronco Town House, the Village of Pelham’s polling station, after police shut down Fifth Avenue between First and Second streets to vehicular traffic following some kind of auto accident. Daronco is in that block, which was closed at around 3:20 p.m. and reopened as of 4:05 p.m.

When the street was closed, people were able to walk down the sidewalks to go into the town house and vote.

A car’s rear windshield was shattered and there appeared to be four to five passengers in the car. The Pelham Fire and Police departments and the EMS fly car were present at the scene. A police officer declined to comment on the accident.

Daronco Town House and all voting locations are open until 9 p.m.
