There were no injuries after a Chevrolet van and John Deere tractor collided just outside the city of Ogdensburg Tuesday afternoon.

The accident happened at 12:22 p.m. on the Stone Church Road, just south of Middle Road.

The van’s left side was smashed and its windows were broken.

Mr. King was the only person in the vehicle at the time. Mr. King, who had small amount of blood on his face, said he declined medical care.
