CORTLAND Eight are hurt in crash involving four vehicles



Published: Thu, July 4, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



CORTLAND -- Eight people, including six mentally retarded adults, were taken to hospitals Wednesday after a four-vehicle accident at state Route 5 and Fowler Street.

They were treated at Forum Health Trumbull Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph Health Center.

The retarded adults are residents of Boyd's Kinsman Home on state Route 5 in Kinsman.

They were being taken to work at Fairhaven Industries in Niles at the time of the 10:30 a.m. accident.

The group-home van driven by Harry Croft, 64, of Kinsman, was southbound on Route 5 at about 25 mph when it struck three other vehicles, city Patrol Officer Tom Andrews said.

The first vehicle was shoved by the van off the right side of the road, the second was shoved off the left side and the third was hit in the rear, he explained.

An occupant of one of the other vehicles was among the eight injured.

Andrews said the driver of the van will be cited with not maintaining an assured clear distance.

Andrews said a broken electric line caused power in half the city to go out about half an hour before the crash. It resulted in backed-up traffic because signals were not working.
