Duke Center Man Hurt in
Crash That Closed Route 59

A Duke Center man was hurt and Route 59 was closed for about 6 hours after a tractor-trailer crashed just east of Kinzua Dam this morning.

Police tell WESB 44-year-old Todd Barrett was headed east and going around a curve when the tractor rolled onto its passenger side and hit a guiderail. The impact caused the semi-trailer’s tank to rupture and spill diesel fuel.

Barrett was taken to Warren General Hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

Clarendon and Glade volunteer firefighters, Warren County Emergency Management, PennDOT, the US Forest Service, Army Corps of Engineers and Red Cross were among the agencies on the scene.
