Playing the role of Rte. 24 today is Rte. 3, which State Police advise ground to a near halt shortly before noon due to an apparently unrelated trio of incidents:
A rollover northbound near Derby Street sent two people to the hospital. Ten minutes later, a couch on top of a vehicle fell off on the southbound side of the same stretch of road, which forced a driver to swerve to avoid the sudden menace, only the car then rolled over as well, sending two more people to the hospital, with minor injuries.
Not long after, a car hit a deer on the northbound side by Exit 13 in Hanover. State Police add:
The deer ran off into the woods after causing damage to the vehicle.
Motorists are no doubt being advised to be alert for incoming meteors and newly erupting volcanoes.
UPDATE: No meteors yet, but there was a dishwasher.
