Car, truck collide at Mill Street intersection

TUPPER LAKE – No one was hurt when two cars collided Wednesday morning at the corner of Mill and Lake streets.

Police said a 1990 Mazda was traveling southwest on Lake Street when it began to turn left onto Mill Street, failing to yield the right of way to a 2004 Chevrolet pickup that was driving northeast on Lake Street.

Police said the pickup struck the front of the Mazda, going over its hood and continuing onto the right side of the road, where it damaged a stone retaining wall in front of a house at 58 Lake St.

Both cars had to be towed due to excessive damage, police said.

Fire and rescue squad volunteers responded to the incident.

Police said Wednesday afternoon that they expect to ticket Neil Hollenbeck, 81, of Tupper Lake, with failure to yield the right of way.
