Accident on Highway 81 results in injures

MCCOOL JUNCTION- On 09/24/2020 at approximately 2:39p.m. the York County Sheriff’s Office and McCool Junction and York Fire Departments were dispatched to a two-vehicle injury accident at the intersection of Road 3 and Highway 81.  Throughout the investigation, it was determined that a 1996 Freightliner driven by Lawrence McGowan of McCool Junction, Nebraska was attempting to turn eastbound on Road 3 from the southbound lanes of Highway 81.

As the tractor-trailer attempted to navigate the turn, a Ford F-250 driven by Eric Banks of Bayou La Batre, Alabama was proceeding northbound into the intersection of Road 3 on Highway 81.  The Ford pickup struck the trailer being pulled by the Freightliner.  The tractor and trailer then overturned causing a load of soybeans to spill on the roadway.  Both drivers were transported to the York General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in this crash and seatbelts were in use by all parties involved.
