HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A tractor-trailer driver was transported to a hospital Friday afternoon after crashing into a house near an Interstate 83 exit ramp in Swatara Township.
A PennDOT spokeswoman said the driver apparently was going too fast on the I-83 ramp to Paxtang and struck the side of the home around 2:30 p.m.
The impact brought down part of the roof. No one was home at the time.
The driver’s medical condition wasn’t immediately available.
The crash closed the Exit 45 off-ramp and slowed northbound traffic on the interstate beginning at the South Bridge.
Firefighters were still working to remove the truck at 5:30 p.m.
