A 19-year-old operating an off-road vehicle died after colliding with a tree-trimming truck August 23, 2022, in Wilson, New York.
The aerial-lift truck, towing a tree chipper and heading west on Youngstown-Lockport Road, collided with the off-road-style dirt bike being operated in the road. Following the collision, the truck left the road, overturned and came to rest in a ditch. The dirt bike also left the road and came to a rest in the same ditch.
The 19-year-old man operating the dirt bike died at the scene. The 30-year-old driver of the truck was taken to Erie County Medical Center by ambulance for what was described as non-life-threatening injuries, according to a Lockport Union-Sun & Journal e-paper report.
