Tractor-Trailer Crashes, Closes Pennsylvania Turnpike Lanes

DONEGAL, Pa. (AP) - The westbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike have reopened between the Donegal and New Stanton exits after a tractor-trailer crash.

The driver has been flown to a hospital following the crash near mile marker 83 just before 4 a.m. Thursday.

Traffic in the eastbound lanes was also being slowed intermittently as crews cleared the wreckage.

The westbound closure has caused traffic to back up for miles before the lanes reopened before 7 a.m.

The cause of the crash and the driver's condition were not immediately known.
