This Indian Lake town dump truck swerved to avoid a direct collision with a logging truck entering Route 30 Nov. 15, overturning into a utility pole and parked SUV.

At half past noon, a B & B Forest Products logging truck driven by Matthew Grossman failed to yield right-of-way to a dump truck while making a left-hand turn from a logging road. The dump truck was operated by town of Indian Lake Highway Department employee Steven Cannan.

The 2011 Nissan Xterra was occupied at the time of the crash, though the driver was not seriously injured.

After swerving to avoid a direct collision, the dump truck struck the trailer of the logging truck and overturned, doing little damage to the tractor trailer.

The dump truck struck a utility pole in its fall, shearing the pole and crushing the rear end of a parked 2011 Nissan sport utility vehicle with one occupant, Rodney Rodriguez of North Terrytown, N.Y.

The Nissan was forced by the collision into another parked car, a 2011 Honda, unoccupied.

Two minor injuries were reported from the collisions.
