ILION – A motor vehicle accident looked worse than it was in Ilion Friday morning.
At about 11:30 a.m., the operator of a dump truck lost control of the vehicle when the truck’s brakes failed while traveling up View Terrace, said Ilion Police Officer Matt Darrow. The truck then rolled down the steep hill, across East Main Street and East State Street, coming to rest partway down an embankment. On its way, the truck struck an unoccupied parked car on East State Street, sending it over the embankment as well.
There were no injuries and no tickets issued, Darrow said.
