“People fly up and down. They go at least – I think it’s posted 35, it’s thickly settled over there – people probably go 60 up there,” said Brandi Curboy, a resident in the area.

Germano is in serious condition.

Our focus and thoughts are on our employee and his family as he receives medical attention,” National Grid spokesman Bob Kievra said in a statement.
