On Saturday, July 25, 2020, at approximately 8:27 a.m., state police responded to a crash on Interstate 84 in the town of Montgomery. Investigation revealed that a tractor trailer traveling west in the left lane entered a work zone along with two New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) trucks. The DOT vehicles were slowing down in the left lane conducting a lane closure in a construction zone with illuminating arrows. A tractor trailer also traveling west attempted to change lanes and struck the tractor trailer in the left lane and then moved back into the right lane striking the two DOT vehicles causing one of them to leave the roadway. Another tractor trailer then failed to stop and struck the DOT vehicle causing it to rollover. The operator of one of tractor trailers, Steven Proctor, age 61 of Clemmons, North Carolina, was taken to Westchester Medical Center via medevac with non-life threatening injuries. All other injuries were minor. The road was closed for several hours and traffic was diverted at exit 28. All lanes were reopened at 5:30 p.m. This is an ongoing investigation.
