According to The Times Union, a propane truck driver had to be extracted from his semi-trailer after driving into another tractor-trailer in an Albany truck accident.

The Albany truck accident occurred when a tractor-trailer made an illegal U-turn in front of the propane truck, and the two semi-trailers collided, causing the propane truck to flip on its side.

After being extracted from his semi, the driver of the propane truck was taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries incurred in the Albany truck accident.

The driver of the other truck was not injured in the New York truck accident, however he was cited for an illegal U-turn, failure to yield entering a roadway and a logbook infraction.

It took officials almost six hours to clear the state road after the Albany truck accident.
