Dump Truck Flattens Van

Friday, June 11, 2010


Investigators suspect the driver of the van might have been blinded by the early morning sun against her windshield, and never even saw the stop sign.

"The dump truck t-boned her, and hit her in the driver's side, and basically pushed her into a house. The dump truck overturned, rolling over on top of her," stated Captain Robert Buchardt of the Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities re-routed traffic away from 219 for several hours during the rescue, and subsequent accident investigation.

After the dump truck was pried loose, there was not much left of the minivan.
