/ Truck Accident /

A truck crash in Conewango, NY sent several children to area hospitalsCONEWANGO, N.Y. — Police say a tractor-trailer crashed into the back-end of a Subaru Outback carrying seven people, including several young children who were taken to Brooks Memorial Hospital.

According to New York State Police, the crash happened around noon on Route 53 in Conewango Valley. The truck, driven by Dewane Pennhollow, 48, of Jamestown, slammed into the rear of a Subaru Outback, driven by Richard Bowen, 78, of Randolph.

Richard Bowen’s vehicle had six others inside; two children were sitting in the hatch back, three in the back seat and two up front, troopers told reporters on Saturday.

Two Amish children, ages 7 and 9, were taken to a Dunkirk hospital. A New York State Police Captain said the most severely injured child was a 10-year-old girl, who was flown to a Oishei’s Children’s Hospital in Buffalo with a broken leg and “possible internal injuries,” the Post-Journal reported.

No charges have been filed, and State Police say their Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit is fully inspecting the truck, and the investigation into what caused the truck to slam into Richard Bowen’s Subaru Outback is ongoing.

Legal Investigation May Be Necessary

Many of the medical services associated with a truck crash can be costly, and the injuries victims sustain can have a lasting impact on their life. Truck accident attorneys in Cattaraugus County say victims may need to open a personal injury claim to get fully compensated for their injuries.

  • Medical bills
  • Transportation Costs
  • Ambulance Expenses
  • Future Medical Care
  • Pain & Suffering
  • And More

  • Truck maintenance records
  • A truck operator’s driving record
  • Overall safety of the roadway
  • The safety of all vehicles involved
  • Dashcam video from the truck itself or other drivers in the area
  • And More
