WHEATLAND, N.Y. — A man is in critical condition at Strong Memorial Hospital after a crash involving a tanker truck Monday morning in the town of Wheatland.
Monroe County sheriff's deputies say the driver of a medical transport van ran a stop sign at the intersection of Wheatland Center Road and Scottsville Mumford Road when it hit a propane tanker truck that was passing through around 8:30 a.m.
The force of the crash tipped the propane truck onto its side and it began to leak fuel.
There was only one person in each vehicle at the time of the crash.
The driver of the van was thrown from his vehicle. He suffered head, upper body and abdominal injuries and was transported to Strong Memorial hospital, where he is in critical condition.
The driver of the tanker truck was also taken to the hospital with abdominal injuries.
Their names are being withheld at this time.
No tickets or charges have been placed, but may be pending after the investigation is complete.
