Adams-County-Sheriffs-Department

QUINCY — The driver of a truck was taken to Blessing Hospital Sunday night for emergency medical treatment after a crash.

Deputies with the Adams County Sheriff’s Department, Adams County EMS and the Tri-Township Fire Department responded to the area of 2418 Gardner Expressway at around 5:51 p.m. after receiving a report of a head-on collision.

Witnesses on the scene reported seeing a GMC truck driving north on Gardner Expressway, then crossing the center line and side-swiping a Walmart 18-wheeler. The GMC truck partially rolled and came to a rest on the driver’s side, and the driver was pinned inside the vehicle and eventually was extracted from the truck.

The driver of the Walmart 18-wheeler sustained minor injuries and refused medical treatment.

Charges are pending. A press release from the Adams County Sheriff’s Department said the investigation is ongoing.
