The call came in around 10 a.m.

Emergency responders said the driver of the Dodge minivan was injured and taken to Robert Packer Hospital by Bangs Ambulance.

Firefighters were kept busy with “fire alarms, EMS calls and car accidents that may have been caused by the slippery road conditions” throughout Monday morning, the news release from Lt. Thomas Basher said.

Around 8 a.m., emergency crews were also called to a rollover crash on Valley Road in Ithaca. Police and firefighters found the car on its side “and the driver outside, shaken but injured.”

“While Engine 909 handled that call, other crews were handling fire alarms downtown in the city,” the news release said.

“As temperatures drop over the next few days and more bad weather is possible, the Ithaca Fire Department reminds everyone to take a few extra minutes, drive slow and get to your destination safely.”
