State Police in Roscoe NY observed a 1998 Lincoln Town Car off of the road and into a ditch on Tennanah Lake Road in Roscoe. The driver, identified as 53 year old Anne Slowey of Roscoe NY, told police that while she was driving, she turned to reprimand her two juvenile children, seated in the rear, and veered off of the roadway.
