UPDATE (2:20 PM) Police: 4 Transported To Hospital In Afternoon Crash
CONEWANGO VALLEY — Four people were taken to the hospital, one with possibly serious injuries, following a crash Friday afternoon between a car and log truck.
The crash took place about 12:07 p.m. on Route 83 in Conewango Valley.
According to Capt. Eric Balon of the New York State Police, a logging truck rear-ended a Subaru Outback — operated by 78-year-old Richard Bowen of Randolph with seven occupants. After the collision, the log truck went off the road and rolled onto its driver’s side.
Two children, a 7- and 9-year-old, were taken by ambulance to Brooks Memorial Hospital.
A 10-year-old girl was flown by helicopter to a Buffalo hospital with a broken leg and “possible internal injuries,” Balon said.
The driver of the log truck, identified as 48-year-old Dewane Pennhollow of Jamestown, was transported to UPMC Chautauqua in Jamestown for treatment of a minor leg injury.
The State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit remains on scene.
No charges have been filed, though Balon said the investigation remains ongoing.
