Police say unsafe speed and snowy conditions were to blame for an accident yesterday morning on Route 11 in Tully, which involved a pickup truck vs. tractor and resulted in several non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators with the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene just south of Curry Road around 10 am, where they say 45-year-old Jennifer Haskins was travelling northbound in a 2001 Dodge pickup when she lost control on the snow-covered road, crossing over the middle line and hitting the southbound moving tractor head-on.
The tractor was also pulling a mixing wagon, owned by Curry Farms and being operated by Peter Richards, who officials say tried to avoid the crash but was unable to.
Both vehicles came to rest off the roadway.
Richards was uninjured in the crash, but Haskins and a 20 year-old male passenger were both brought from the scene to Upstate Medical Center by TLC Ambulance for chest and leg pain.
Also helping the Sheriff’s Office at the scene were New York State Police, Homer Fire department, Preble Fire and Rescue, Ron’s Auto, Doody Brothers, and the NYS DOT.
At this point, no charges have been filed, but the accident remains under investigation.
