WATERTOWN — Four people, including a toddler and an infant, were injured as a result of a collision between an SUV and a work vehicle from Hart’s Towing and Repair Friday morning near the intersection of Route 37 and Waddingham Road in the town of Pamelia.
Harry E. Faulk Jr., assistant chief of the Pamelia Fire Department, said the work vehicle rear-ended the SUV as it was about to turn onto Waddingham Road. The collision, he said, caused both vehicles to roll over onto their hoods into a ditch off of the road.
“Both vehicles are totaled.” Mr. Faulk said.
A LifeNet helicopter transported the work vehicle driver to Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse for treatment of his injuries. The SUV driver and her children were transported to Samaritan Medical Center by Guilfoyle Ambulance and Evans Mills ambulance. Mr. Faulk said he wasn’t aware of the extent of their injuries.
The Philadelphia, North Pole and Fort Drum fire departments also provided assistance at the scene. The incident was reported around 11:45 a.m.
