ALBANY -- Joseph Mathis, 16, drove his 1992 blue Ford F-150 pickup south on North van Buren Street, stopped at the sign and then drove right in front of a 2012 red Dodge Ram 1500 at about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to an Albany Police Department report.
The Dodge, driven east on Third Avenue by James Goins, 38, hit the Ford F-150 and flipped it onto a power pole, the report added. Mathis, a passenger, Kieran Taylor, 16, and an unnamed 15-year-old boy passenger were taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, reports stated.
Mathis and Taylor were no longer at the hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said. Because the unnamed boy is a juvenile, no additional information on him was available.
Both pickups sustained damage that was described as extensive in reports. The report added that there were no skid marks from either truck. Air bags deployed in the Dodge.
