Man hurt after his truck strikes tree
One person was taken to a local hospital in an unknown condition after a Tuesday morning crash at a Grand Junction intersection.
A witness on scene said the victim was an elderly man and Grand Junction Fire Department paramedics were trying to revive him.
About 9:15 a.m., a Dodge truck reportedly jumped a curb and hit a tree before stopping a few feet from a business on the northwest corner of Ninth Street and Grand Avenue, the Grand Junction Police Department said.
The man driving apparently had a medical incident near Ninth Street and slumped over behind the wheel. The passenger tried to steer the truck, which hit a curb and a tree before coming to a stop near the intersection, the Police Department added.
The passenger was not injured.
The Police Department did not have an update on the man’s condition Tuesday night.
