Pennsylvania trucker injured after truck crashes in Yates County

The Yates County Sheriff’s Office reports a tractor-trailer accident, which happened along Route 14 near Lakemont in Starkey last week.

The driver of that truck was injured, according to the Chronicle-Express.

Michael T. Jayne, 52, of Gillett, Pa., was hauling a load of plate glass when the rig went off the west side of the highway, struck a driveway and an embankment, ejecting the load of glass out of the front of the trailer.

Dundee Fire & Ambulance, Schuyler Ambulance, and Yates County Emergency Management responded, as did the Dresden Fire Dept. Spill Response Team to contain leaking fuel.

Jayne was pulled from the wreckage and taken to a hospital in Pennsylvania for treatment of his injuries.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
