A tractor-trailer driver was injured in a crash that closed the southbound lanes of Interstate 81 in Franklin County for seven hours Thursday morning, police said.
State police in Chambersburg said the truck was traveling north when it left its lane of travel and went into the southbound lanes, where it sideswiped another vehicle before overturning on the embankment at mile marker 12.5 in Guilford Township.
The trailer’s load of galvanized pipe was spilled onto the roadway.
The crash just after 3:30 a.m. closed I-81’s southbound lanes until around 10:30 a.m.
Police said the truck driver was in serious condition.
No other injuries were reported.
