OXFORD – Around 6 a.m. Wednesday in the Town of Oxford, a tractor-trailer careened across an intersection and collided with an embankment, flipping the trailer and burying the cab.
The trailer was heading west down county Rt. 35 and failed to stop at the traffic light intersecting state Rt. 12 just before the village line. The driver, Lewis Lopez, 40, said, “I lost my brakes coming down. I did everything I could to not hit anybody.”
