Nine people, including two yeshiva bochurim, were sent to the hospital early this morning following an accident involving a minivan and a tractor-trailer truck on Route 17 in the Wurtsboro area.

The crash occurred at about 4 a.m., when the minivan rear-ended the truck near exit 114, State Police said.
One of the occupants in the van was transported to Orange Regional Medical Center in the Town of Wallkill by Hatzolah and was later airlifted to Westchester Medical Center.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
