Central Pennsylvania (Harrisburg) Interstate 81 Tractor Trailer Accident Causes Fatality

Comments Off

How important is it for people to drive in a manner where they can stop their car, truck or motorcycle immediately when traffic is backed up in front of them?

WHTM TV-27 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania is reporting about a man who was killed after a seven vehicle crash on I-81 North near West Hanover Township.

The crash happened just before 2 p.m. Sunday June 24, 2012 when a tractor trailer traveling southbound could not brake in time due to stopping traffic and struck several vehicles. The tractor trailer driver was not wearing his seatbelt and was partially ejected from the truck, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Two people had to be taken to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for minor injuries, according to police.

I-81 North was closed for several hours while crews worked on the scene.

Police have not released the name of the driver.

The Pennsylvania State Police are still investigating the accident.
