Dozens vehicles involved in I-80 wrecks (PA)


Recommended Posts

OIL CITY – Interstate 80 eastbound is closed in Mercer County from Exit 4A (Interstate 376 eastbound, New Castle) to Exit 15 (Route 19, Mercer) due to a crash involving multiple vehicles.


A tow-truck driver told The Herald that at least a dozen vehicles were involved in the accident.

The roadway is expected to reopen later today.


A speed restriction of 45 miles per hour is also in place in the entire length of Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania. Commercial vehicles should use the right lane only.


PennDOT and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has also imposed Level 1 restrictions on interstate highways, including the Pennsylvania Turnpike, in eastern Pennsylvania.


Level 1 restrictions prohibit the following vehicles on affected roadways:

· Tractors without trailers;

· Tractors towing unloaded or lightly loaded enclosed trailers, open trailers or tank trailers;

· Tractors towing unloaded or lightly loaded tandem trailers;

· Enclosed cargo delivery trucks that meet the definition of a CMV;

· Passenger vehicles (cars, SUV’s, pickup trucks, etc.) towing trailers;

· Recreational vehicles/motorhomes;

· School buses, commercial buses and motor coaches; and

· motorcycles.




As snow slows down in York roads may become icy, PennDOT won’t stop for stuck drivers


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — The snow is measuring more than 8 inches in some areas of York County but the snowfall is starting to slow down.


Roads are clearing up but a big concern right now is ice forming on the roads causing unsafe driving conditions.


PennDOT says when they are coming through and see a stuck car they cannot stop for you, you will have to call a tow truck to get out of that situation.
