Truck vs. car accident closes Route 20 at Route 77

It may be a minor injury accident, but responders are requesting that Route 20 be closed at Route 77.

Alexander Fire and Ambulance responded to the scene of what was reported as a truck vs. car accident with minor injuries.

UPDATE Tuesday, 9:53 a.m.: We've received the accident report on this incident.

A tractor-trailer was westbound on Route 20, reportedly driven by Rashpal S. Jhutty, 43, of Alabaster Road, Rexdale, Ontario, Canada, when the truck apparently strayed into the eastbound lane.

Wendy Green, 52, of Alexander, pulled her 2003 Pontiac sedan out of a driveway in the area of 3082 Route 20.

Her vehicle was struck on the side, the back driver's side area and knocked off the roadway.

The cargo on the truck was reportedly not securely fastened and spilled onto Route 20.

No injuries were reported.

Jhutty was issued three citations, including one for allegedly driving on the wrong side of the road.

The accident investigation was handled by Deputy Kevin McCarthy.

It seems to be closer to where Beachheads is in the Village of Alexander on Broadway. Its about a mile in from that location. Seems to be a pretty big deal for minor injuries. Lots of flashing lights all the way across the road. My husband had to detour around it just to get back toward Beachheads. Would like to know what is happening since it is about a mile from home.

I heard on the scanner that the DOT was called in because of damage to the road from an item that fell off of the truck. And since the truck/car accident was in progress, so was the house fire on Pratt Rd., so ya had to listen closely at times.
