Accident with truck transporting hay sends 5 to hospital
HILLSDALE - Five people were sent to the hospital after a Saturday afternoon accident.
The Columbia County Sherriffs Office say a car with four people were traveling east on Route 32 near Bushnell Road at around 3:30 p.m. when they crossed in front of an oncoming tractor trailer transporting hay.
That driver then attempted to avoid the collision and overturned, taking out four utility poles, igniting a grass fire near the road.
One of the injured was flown to Albany Medical Center, the other were taken by ambulance. The conditions of the injured have not been released.
