ITHACA, N.Y. — Following a tractor trailer-pedestrian crash last week, tickets have been issued to both the driver and pedestrian.
The crash took place at about 11:28 p.m. July 18 at the intersection of Route 13 and Willow Avenue. The pedestrian sustained a serious head injury and was transported to a regional trauma center via helicopter.
The operator of the tractor trailer was issued two traffic tickets for commercial vehicle equipment violations. He was not issued any tickets for factors that contributed to the crash, Public Information Officer Jamie Williamson said. The pedestrian was ticketed for failing to obey a crosswalk signal.
Williamson said he was not sure of the pedestrian’s condition Thursday.
