Driver Escapes Injury When SUV Collides With Tractor-Trailer
The driver of a red Hyundai Tucson headed west apparently failed to make the turn and struck the trailer of a Holland Co. Peterbilt heading down the Mohawk Trail. The collision occurred right at the center of the tight turn and knocked the sport utility vehicle backward into the snow bank on the south side. The incident was reported at 3:51 p.m.
The Hyundai suffered severe damage to its front end; there was debris in the road and the SUV's grille was off. The Peterbilt did not appear to have any significant damage.
Neither the driver of the SUV nor the Peterbilt was injured and the SUV's driver was cited.
Northern Berkshire EMS, the Clarksburg Fire Department and state police responded to the scene. Traffic was diverted around the SUV until it could be towed.
