Deputies: Three hurt as driver, 77, runs red light
TOWN OF VERNON — Three people were hospitalized after law enforcers said a 77-year-old driver ran a red light and his car collided with a tractor trailer Thursday morning.
Sheriff’s deputies said Nathan Hartle, of Vernon, was eastbound on Route 5 at about 9 a.m. when he ran the red light at the intersection with Route 26.
Deputies said Hartle’s vehicle collided with a northbound tractor trailer hauling heavy equipment, driven by David Keefer, 47, of Lowville.
Keefer and his passenger, 19-year-old Clayton Keefer, were taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica for head and neck pain, authorities said.
Hartle was treated at the Oneida Health Care Center for chest pain.
Deputies said Hartle was also ticketed for failure to stop at the red light. He is scheduled to appear in Town Court.
