Trucks Pulling Trailers Involved in Crash Monday in Franklin County

ROYALTON – A Tamaroa teen was involved in a two-vehicle accident around 2:15 Monday afternoon on Elkville Blacktop at the intersection with Nighthawk Road in Franklin County.  

Franklin County Sheriff Don Jones says 16-year-old Colin R. Williams was pulling a trailer with his pickup going east when he attempted to negotiate a turn to the south.

Williams lost control and the trailer he was pulling crossed into the other lane and struck another pickup also pulling a trailer.

There were no injuries reported.

Williams was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.
