A New Brighton man suffered minor injury in a crash that occurred when the driver of the car he was in ran underneath the rear of a tractor-trailer Monday afternoon, according to state police at Lamar.

The crash occurred at the Interstate80 westbound off-ramp at state Route 64 in Porter Township, Clinton County, at about 2:15 p.m., police reported.

A car driven by Florine McQuade, 77, of Ridgewood, N.J., was traveling down the off ramp and failed to see a tractor-trailer stopped at the stop sign at the bottom of the ramp.

McQuade’s car ran under the rear of the trailer, police said.

McQuade, the driver of the tractor-trailer, Robert Burton, 65, of Conley, Ga., and his passenger, Teresa Burton, 56, also of Conley, were all wearing seat belts and were uninjured. McQuade’s passenger, James DeMaria, 53, was also wearing a seat belt and suffered minor injury, police said. No information was available on whether he sought medical care.

McQuade’s car suffered major damage and was towed from the scene.

  1. I’m glad to hear the Mrs. MCQuade is okay. Her husband of 51 years passed away recently and I’m sure that she’s having a tough time.

    Mrs. McQuade, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    – a caring neighbor
