Albion firefighters, including Rob Connor with Hurst Tool, pry open a door on a pickup truck to let out the driver after an accident this morning at about 9:07 on Clarendon Street.

The driver of the pickup truck was making a left turn from Crimson Drive and was struck by another vehicle that was coming over the Clarendon Street Bridge.

Central Orleans Volunteer Ambulance was on scene treating people for minor injuries.

Police Chief Roland Nenni said the accident remains under investigation. He said the intersection at Crimson Drive and the base of the bridge is “very dangerous” due to limited visibility. However, there haven’t been too many accidents there over the years.

The bridge is scheduled to be torn out this spring.
