An Albion teen is hospitalized after crashing with an 18-wheeler.
The Orleans County Sheriff’s Office says it happened at about 10 Wednesday morning near Route 31 in the Town of Murray.
Frank Kania IV, 18, was the sole occupant of his 1993 Ford Escort going south on Hulberton Road. Deputies say he failed to yield right-of-way and entered the intersection into the path of a tractor trailer.
The truck driver took proper action to avoid collision, but was unable to completely avoid hitting Kania’s car.
The truck from Illinois ran off the road into a ditch, struck a utility pole and then overturned on its side.
The truck driver was not hurt.
Kania was taken by ground ambulance to Strong Memorial. A patient information representative for the hospital says he is still under evaluation.
