The driver of the pick up suffered serious injuries. but the driver of the tractor trailer  refused medical treatment at the scene, police said.  Police are trying to determine why the pick-up truck crossed the lane of travel . Was it a medical condition, a drug overdose, or a defect with his truck?  All of the reasons will be explored, police said.


The driver of the pick up was trapped in his vehicle for a brief period of time, officials said.  Woodbourne Road was closed for over an hour  at the accident scene.
