    MILFORD n Officials said Tuesday that two were injured in a three-vehicle, 12:55 p.m. crash on Route 209, about a mile south of Milford October 11. Milford Fire Department Assistant Chief Stan Ciesielski said the accident involved a tractor-trailer, a car and a Milford Borough dump truck. Borough Councilman Robert Fean said street department employees Ronald Potter and Paul Curran were southbound taking a load of leaves to the old town dump and were stopped, signaling a left turn. The car, whose occupants were not immediately identified, was behind them when a tractor trailer struck the car, driving it into the borough truck. Ciesielski said the car’s two occupants would have been airlifted out, but that rescue helicopters were grounded due to the rainy weather. The injured were instead transported by ambulance to Bon Secours Hospital in Port Jervis, where no information was available on their conditions. National Park Service law enforcement personnel, who have traffic enforcement jurisdiction in the park, were unavailable for comment at press time. Fean said the 1995 GMC truck had extensive damage and wasn’t likely to be repaired.
