Crash Closes Route 62

Route 62 in the Russell area was closed for about an hour Saturday evening after a tractor-trailer hit a pickup truck and both of them ended up blocking the road.

No one was hurt in the crash.

Police say the pickup driven by 28-year-old Jerry Rhoades of Sugar Grove was stopped on Route 62, waiting to make a left turn into Werner Park, when it was hit from behind by the tractor-trailer, driven by 25-year-old Aaron Phillips of Brahnport, New York. The tractor-trailer eventually stopped just past Werner Park, blocking both lanes. The pickup was blocking the northbound lane.

The road was closed while the wreckage was being removed. Police say charges of following too closely are pending against Phillips.
