Crash on Interstate 80 slows traffic near Milton
MILTON – One lane was closed on Interstate 80 Thursday afternoon after a crash involving a tractor-trailer truck in Union County. The accident happened around 3 p.m. on westbound I-80 at mile marker 201 near the exit for Route 147 in White Deer Township.
State police say 72-year-old Robert Holvick of Minnesota drove off the road for unknown reasons and swerved to get back onto the highway and struck a large ditch. A portion of the truck was blocking a lane, so that lane was closed for about two hours. Holvick was taken to Geisinger Medical Center for treatment of moderate injuries. His condition is not available. No other vehicles were involved. (Ali Stevens)
