First Accident of the New Year's Weekend Occurs

The first accident of the New Year's Holiday has occurred in Mesa County. One truck driver loses control in a curve on Northbound Highway 65 along Plateau Creek and before the following driver can react that truck ends up astride the other. The crash happened just before five o'clock this afternoon. Road conditions were good at the time of the crash and a Mesa volunteer Fire Department rescuer says he does not know why the first truck spun out. Both vehicles ended up bedside the road with everyone saying it was miraculous no?one was seriously injured. Three people were transported to the hospital for checkups. There is no word yet on any charges one or both of the drivers could face.
