I78 Multiple Vehicle Accidents

January 26, 2016

The morning started out with heading to I78 W in the area of M/M 25 for an MVA involving a tractor trailer. As freezing rain was now over taking our area things quickly grew worse. Between Shartlesville and Lenhartsville there were now reported multiple vehicle accidents all involving at least 1 if not more tractor trailers. With the aid of Fire Police and PENN Dot I78 was completely shut down in order for us to gain control of the scenes. The incident around MM 26 resulted in the tractor trailer loosing its load. Crews remained on the highway for several hours until debris and clean up could be completed. The highway was finally able to be reopened around 15oo hours.
