VERNON – Three people were injured in an accident involving a tractor trailer in Vernon on Thursday, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say around 9 a.m. Thursday, April 12, 77-year-old Nathan Hartle of Vernon was driving eastbound on State Route 5 in Vernon when he allegedly drove through a red light at the intersection of state routes 5 and 26.

Hartle’s vehicle struck a tractor trailer driven by 47-year-old David Keefer of Lowville, which was driving northbound on State Route 26 and hauling heavy equipment.

Deputies say Hartle was transported to Oneida Hospital for evaluation of chest pain, and Keefer and his son, 19-year-old Clayton Keefer, were transported to St. Elizabeth Medical Center with head and neck pain.

Hartle was issued a traffic ticket for failure to stop at a red light, returnable to Vernon Town Court at a later date.

The Vernon Volunteer Fire Department and Vineall Ambulance also assisted at the scene.
