At least five separate crashes have shut down parts of Interstate 81 and Interstate 78 in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, PennDOT officials say.
According to PennDOT:
- 81 North is closed from exit 80 to 85 because of debris and emergency responder vehicles
- 81 South is closed from exit 90 to 80.
- There are five separate crashes that are being responded to.
- Mile-marker 82 currently has a 200-meter quarantined area based on a hazmat issue. That crash involved six or seven tractor-trailers.
- Mile-marker 87 involved four or five tractor-trailers
- Mile-marker 88 involved five to 10 tractor-trailers with one truck over the embankment and what appears to be fiberglass spread across the road.
- Mile-marker 88.5 involved four tractor-trailers.
- 78 West is closed after a tractor-trailer hit the bridge over the Swatara Creek, leaving it cracked in half.
There is no timetable for clearing and reopening the roads, however, officials believe it be well after midnight — and likely to be fully open Thursday morning.
