ROXBURY, Pa. - A Huntingdon County, Pa., man died after he was injured Tuesday morning when the pickup truck he was driving collided with another truck in Lurgan Township, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Curtis L. Montague, 22, of Fleming Road, Neelyton, Pa., was pronounced dead at 11:01 a.m. in the emergency room at Chambersburg (Pa.) Hospital, Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner said. Montague died of blunt force chest trauma, he said.

Police said Montague was driving a 1998 Ford Ranger XLT in the 13000 block of Forge Hill Road at 10:15 a.m. when he lost control on a curve and went into the opposing lane. The truck collided with a 2000 Freightliner rollback, driven by Raymond E. Stull, 46, of Chambersburg, Pa., police said.

Deputy Coroner Kenneth L. Peiffer said the Freightliner, which was carrying a skidloader on its bed, struck the passenger's side of the Ranger. The accident happened about two miles west of Roxbury near the water treatment plant, Peiffer said.

Montague, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to Chambersburg Hospital by a Pleasant Hall Volunteer Fire Co. ambulance, police said. Stull, who was wearing a seat belt, had minor injuries, but refused medical treatment at the scene, police said.

Police said the road surface was wet at the time of the accident and there was no evidence that alcohol was involved. Conner said there would be no autopsy.
