County committee members discuss transfer station accident

by Carol Thompson

A Pulaski man was taken to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse after his car crashed through the Pulaski transfer station shortly before noon Monday.

The man, identified as Joseph Holynski, 65, backed his car into the main building and failed to stop, emerging his car out the other side, where it fell approximately 20 feet, landed on its back end and rolled onto its roof.

Oswego County Solid Waste Director Frank Visser told members of the legislature’s Infrastructure and Facilities Committee Tuesday: “In my mind, it is amazing that person didn’t get hurt.”

Visser noted that Holynski backed up into the bay and kept going.

Employees of the transfer station acted quickly and Legislator James Oldenburg, who chairs the committee, commended them for their quick response and the manner they handled the entire incident.

Visser said Holynski was talking when employees arrived to assist him.

“He had no idea where he was and what had happened,” Visser said of the accident victim.
