HORSEHEADS, N.Y. (WENY) -- An accident on Route 13 near Crom Link Rd. between an oil tanker and passenger car briefly stopped traffic in both directions Friday afternoon. Two individuals who were inside the car said no one was seriously hurt as a result of the accident and an ambulance that came to the scene left without a patient. 

It appears that the car and oil tanker struck when headed in opposite directions as they were located about half a mile from one another facing away from each other.

The car took heavy damage and needed to be towed away. The condition of the oil tanker appears to have suffered from minor damage. The accident took place around 3:20 p.m.
