Two people were taken to the hospital after an accident involving a tractor-trailer and a car Monday.
The accident, which occurred at 12:25 p.m. at the intersection of Fifth Street and North Main Street, sent a pregnant woman and her mother to WCA Hospital for minor injuries and precautionary evaluations.
The tractor-trailer was being driven by Michael Sheets, 38, of Imperial, Pa. heading east on West Fifth Street when it crossed North Main Street. According to officials with the Jamestown Police Department, the tractor-trailer was in the center lane going through the intersection when a 2003 Toyota Rav4 being driven by Marcy Fisk, 51, of Forestville, which was heading north on North Main Street, went through the red light and struck the front end of the tractor-trailer.
