Two transported to hospitals after truck hits tractor in Windham Township
Two people were transported to area hospitals after a pickup truck rear-ended a farm tractor Tuesday in Windham Township, a Windham fire official said.
The accident occurred at approximately 7:10 a.m. as the vehicles were traveling west on LeRaysville Road, a couple of miles from the Warren Township line, said Tad Soden, first assistant chief of the Windham Township Volunteer Fire Company.
One of the injured people was transported to a hospital by emergency medical helicopter, he said.
The driver of the pickup truck was injured, as was one of the two people who were riding on the tractor, he said. The other person riding on the tractor was "not really injured," he said.
He said he could not disclose the names of anyone who was involved in the accident, due to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act's privacy regulations.
Soden said he was not sure which of the two injured people was transported by helicopter.
"The whole front end (of the pickup truck) was smashed," he said.
He said he was not sure how much damage there was to the tractor.
However, he said the tractor was able to be driven off the road after the crash, and, based on its appearance, there didn't seem to be a lot of damage to it, he said.
No information was available on Tuesday from the state police, who investigated the accident.
