TWO ESCAPE SERIOUS INJURY IN VAN-SEMI WRECK
A truck driver made a mistake
Monday afternoon and caused a traffic crash, but it could have been much worse
than it was.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol
says that at 3:15 p.m., 30-year-old William Cain of Big Springs, West Virginia,
pulled his tractor-trailer out from Blue Knob Road onto State Route 7 and into
the path of a Ford van driven by 22-year-old Russell Allen of Little Hocking.
The van slammed into the side
of the trailer. Allen and his passenger, 45-year-old Miriam Allen of Little
Hocking, were reported to be trapped in their van. The Warren Township
volunteer fire department responded.
The Allens were taken to Camden
Clark Medical Center for treatment. Fortunately, according to the Highway Patrol, their
injuries were not life-threatening.
Mr. Cain, who was not
injured, was cited for failure to yield.
