GETTY_030314_FenderBenderThere have been several fender benders out there this morning, on average about 4 per hour, on roadways and parking lots.

Obviously, some people still don’t know how to distance themselves or control their vehicles in the snow.

Be careful out there and remember driving 101 wherever you go.

Car repairs, even from minor fender benders can be costly.

BEST POLICE Patch EVEROfficers responded to 387 Valleybrook Road regarding a domestic violence complaint on Sunday, Feb. 22 at 1:18 a.m.

Investigation revealed that Timothy Lydon, 41, of 387 Valleybrook Road, Orange, had gotten into an argument with a female relative, and that the argument turned physical.

Lydon allegedly choked the victim and covered her face so she could not breathe.

Officers took Lydon into custody and he was subsequently charged with third-degree strangulation (a felony) and disorderly conduct.

He was held on $5,000 bonds for court later that day.
