A two-vehicle crash involving two pickup trucks claimed the life of a Delta man. The accident took place on Highway 9 in Delta in the early afternoon hours on Monday, August 13.
According to state troopers, 57-year-old Stephen Green was driving south when his truck collided with another truck that was traveling north. Green was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the other truck involved was not injured. Sources say the uninjured driver fell asleep at the wheel, but that has not been confirmed at this time. Rescue personnel spent five hours trying to clear the scene, with clean-up and extrication efforts.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Green’s family.
