A teenage box truck driver has been cited for a crash that temporarily closed Route 7 in New Milford yesterday afternoon.  Police responded to a multi-vehicle collision near Still River Drive.  The 19-year old from Bridgeport traveled onto the northbound shoulder of Route 7 where he lost control and turned sharply across both lanes of travel, striking a northbound utility van.  The van was pushed into oncoming southbound traffic, hitting a pickup truck and minivan.  A first responder en route to another call, around 11:30, reported the accident.  The minivan driver was transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.  Route 7 was closed for about an hour and a half.  The crash remains under investigation.
