Man cut from truck after Albany crash

October 10, 2006

Albany-  A man had to be cut from his truck this morning after it overturned during a crash at the intersection of Palmyra and Seventh Avenue. 

Witnesses say the truck was attempting to turn from Palmyra onto Seventh Avenue just after eight when it was struck broadside by the car. The truck spun several times before rolling over. Kelly Brennan is a first aid and CPR instructor and checked on everyone after the crash. Brennan said the crash was no surprise. 

"Everyday, somebody's turning too quick down the road right here and there's always a car honking at them or something, it's always, every morning, and people really go too fast through here," said Kelly Brennan, a witness. 

Firefighters had to brace the man's truck and pry the door open before they could remove the man who was described as folded over in the cab. The woman in the car was able to exit the vehicle on her own. The driver of the truck was transported to the hospital for treatment. We don't know their names or conditions.
