YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A lone driver on Old Hook Road in Westwood fell asleep behind the wheel of his Land Rover, which knocked down a utility pole, stretching power lines, before it came to rest in the woods.

Something you hardly ever see: Geese who usually hang at Westwood Cemetery grazing on Old Hook

The driver walked away with barely a scratch after the 6:30 a.m. rollover this morning.

Utility workers quickly had a new pole in place. But Old Hook Road between Kinderkamack Road and Sand Road remained closed at 2 p.m. while police waited for the phone company to complete its work.

An Optimum worker was on the scene about an hour earlier.

Business was cramped at Burke’s at Old Hook.

However, a half-dozen people were at the bar at 1, a few of them having lunch.
