Car, Sanitation Truck Collide On Durham Lake Road (PHOTO GALLERY)

Around 9 AM Monday morning, Mar-Mac and Thoroughfare firefighters, as well as Wayne County EMS, were dispatched to a two-vehicle crash on the 400 block of Durham Lake Road.  The collision involved a passenger car and a Wayne County sanitation truck.  The call was upgraded to a “possible pin-in.”  Mar-Mac firefighters and EMS removed the female driver from the car and loaded her onto an ambulance for transport to the hospital.  The sanitation truck was apparently traveling north on Durham Lake Road while the car was heading south.  According to witnesses at the scene, the car rounded a curve and crossed the centerline, striking the truck.  The truck was heavily damaged and the front end of the car was completely ripped off in the collision.  The driver of the sanitation truck was not injured in the crash.  The Office of Emergency Services was called to the scene to give advice on a small fluid spill.  The State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash and charges are pending.
