SUV, tractor trailer collide in Cascade Pass

KEENE – One person was taken to the hospital after a sport-utility vehicle collided with a tractor trailer in Cascade Pass Thursday morning.

Wilmington-based state police said Jenniffer Hart, 32, of Trenton, Ontario, was driving a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder east on state Route 73 around 9:20 a.m. when she lost control of her vehicle on the snow-covered road and went left of the pavement markings. The Pathfinder struck the side of a westbound 2010 International truck driven by Scott Cassavaugh, 59, of Hinsdale, N.H. Both vehicles came to rest in the roadway.

Hart was transported to Adirondack Medical Center for evaluation of unspecified injuries. She was treated and released.

Cassavaugh was not injured, police said.

Route 73 was closed until both vehicles could be removed from the road.

Hart was ticketed for failure to keep right.

Both the Keene and Lake Placid volunteer fire departments responded to the scene. Lake Placid firefighters were back in service at 10:47 a.m.
