Schenectady firefighters were called to an accident on Rosa Road, just adjacent to the Ellis Hospital Emergency entrance on March 5, 2019, to find a man who hit a utility pole and sheared off a fire hydrant, ending up in the bushes of a home. After getting the driver onto a stretcher and into an ambulance, he reportedly assaulted an SFD paramedic and a police officer. No other injuries were reported.
