LEONARDSVILLE, N.Y. – A man is in stable condition after he was airlifted to Upstate University Hospital Sunday, following a head-on crash in Leonardsville.

A pickup truck and a tractor-trailer collided on State Route 8 near School Street around 6 p.m.

According to Madison County Sheriff’s Office, William Chaisson, of Clayville, was driving his truck north when witnesses say he veered into the southbound lane. Chaisson then collided with the tractor-trailer, driven by 44-year-old Justin Parker of Westerlo.
