Pharmaceuticals Spill in Route 17 Crash Near Hancock
Delaware County Sheriff’s officials say the driver of a tractor trailer that crashed on Route 17 near Hancock March 13, closing a portion of the road for most of the morning, apparently fell asleep at the wheel.
The rig overturned while traveling east at around 3:30 in the morning as the driver failed to negotiate a curve in the road near the Horton exit.
Sheriff’s Deputies say 27-year-old Cody Camp of Barton, New York suffered minor injuries in the crash that spilled the trailer’s mixed load of cargo, including pharmaceutical products all over the road. Officials say the pharmaceuticals were all recovered after hours of clean-up work.
Road crews also had to be called in toe repair damaged guard rails.
Camp was ticketed for unsafe lane change.
