Accident

The driver of the older Ford pickup was airlifted to the Valley Monday.

A woman was airlifted to the Valley Monday after the vehicle she was in reportedly pulled out in front of a truck on the Beeline Highway.

A black pickup truck was heading southbound on State Route 87 Monday morning when the driver of an older Ford pickup, waiting to turn onto Forest Drive, reportedly pulled out in front of the black truck, according to Police Chief Ron Tischer.

The impact tossed a baby stroller from the bed of the black truck onto the roadway and the truck’s battery onto the road. The passengers in the black truck, including an infant, were treated and released at the scene, Tischer said.

A woman in the older Ford was airlifted. The driver of the older Ford was cited for failure to yield the right of way while making a left turn, Tischer said.

Tischer did not know the ages of the five persons involved or the extent of injuries.
