Millstone Township, PA – Although a truck crashed into a tree in Elk County on Wednesday and was severely damaged, the driver walked away with only minor injuries.

The still unnamed driver struck a tree near the intersection of River Road and Hoffhill Road in Millstone Township (near Cooksburg).

The man says he crashed earlier Wednesday morning but wasn’t able to call anyone, so he was forced to wait in the cold until 7:45 when the crash was finally discovered and called in.

According to the Sigel Volunteer Fire Department, the driver had minor injuries but refused transport to the hospital.
