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.
