Newville, PA — An accident between a minivan, a tow truck, and two 18-wheelers along I-81 on Friday morning (June 7, 2013) left the tow truck driver dead. Police have not yet identified the deceased driver, but they are still in the investigative process.
According to the news reports, the tow truck was headed north on I-81 just south of Centerville Road at about 9:30 a.m. when it swerved into the southbound lanes for unknown reasons. The tow truck first crashed into an 18-wheeler that was hauling two trailers. The collision made one trailer overturn and a passing minivan was struck by debris.
Then, the tow truck crashed into a second 18-wheeler, seriously injuring that driver and killing the tow truck’s driver. Police have not determined why the accident happened or what caused the tow truck to swerve into oncoming traffic, but investigations are underway.
