Fire truck hits pickup

A fire truck and pickup truck were involved in an accident Friday morning on Blue Mountain Road in Warren County about 3/10 of a mile north of Howellsville Road.

Sgt. F.L. (Les) Tyler of the Virginia State Police said the 2015 fire truck from Warren County Company No. 6 was driven by Christian Lichvar, 42, of Front Royal. Tyler said the fire truck was heading to an accident on the northbound side of Blue Mountain Road when it came upon traffic that had been stopped on the roadway by the accident. Tyler said that Lichvar was crossing the centerline to reach the other side of the road when he sideswiped a 2003 Toyota pickup truck driven by Wendy Thrane, 52, of Front Royal.

Thrane was treated for accident-related injuries and released from Winchester Medical Center. No other injuries were reported. No charges were filed against either driver.
