1 hurt in Hampshire crash caused by weather
Treacherous weather-related driving conditions may be to blame for a crash between a semi and a pickup truck that snarled traffic late Thursday afternoon in Hampshire, authorities said.
Drivers were experiencing white-out conditions, with blowing snow and black ice on roadways at the time of the crash, which occurred at 4:46 p.m. on Route 20 north of the intersection with Big Timber Road, according to Lt. Eric Larson of the Hampshire Fire Protection District.
Firefighters had to extricate the driver of the pickup truck from his vehicle, which sustained heavy damage to the front passenger side. The driver was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, Larson said.
The semi driver was uninjured.
Larson said crews were preparing to pull the semi from the road when firefighters left about 5:25 p.m.
