A coach bus bottomed out entering the driveway of the Hudson-Chatham Winery on Route 66 in Ghent Friday afternoon, causing a delay in traffic and for the passengers from Connecticut, a slight delay in their plans. According to the bus driver, their first stop was the winery and then lunch and then a stop at Love Apple Farm. The bus driver quipped that it looked like he hadn’t been the first to bottom out as evidenced by previous ruts left in the road in front of the driveway. A New York State trooper was on scene directing traffic and Robbie Speed of Speed’s Garage in Mellenville helped the bus back out of the driveway. Around 12:30 p.m., the bus was ready to roll again.
