Odessa truck-car crash injures one

A truck hauling trash and en route from Newfield to Geneva went off the road on Main Street in Odessa Wednesday morning, struck a car waiting to turn onto Main from College Avenue, and ended up in a ditch down the road, tilted on its side.

A passenger in the car -- a young boy -- was taken to the hospital by ambulance for treatment.

The driver of the truck, Bruce Daugherty -- who said he was driving for Bishop's, a hauling firm out of Pennsylvania -- explained that he didn't know how the accident occurred. He said he was driving west at the speed limit in Odessa when "something happened, maybe in the front of the truck." The vehicle veered off the road to the left, 20 feet from a house on the corner, knocked down a sign, hit the car (spinning it into a pole), and continued down into the ditch.

One good thing, the driver noted: the truck's fuel tank didn't rupture.

Cleanup crews were on the scene afterward, and officials said the truck would be inspected to determine the cause of the accident.
