Semi-truck crashes into car on Route 8, sending it over the guardrail

Local News

A crash sending one car over a guardrail closes a busy stretch of Route 8 this afternoon.  

Rescue crews were called to Route 8 and Dutch Road for reports of a crash between a semi-tractor trailer and a car.  The car was pushed over a guardrail by the truck, leaving the truck hanging over the edge.  

Investigators say both vehicles were heading north when they collided.  They say it appears the car slowed to make a turn, then the truck driver tried to make it around the car and failed to do so.

No injuries were reported.
