There was a serious Lancaster tractor trailer crash this morning which has closed Route 30 in both directions in East Lampeter Township and it is expected to be shut down for hours. The Lancaster New Era/Lancaster Online is reporting that two people were transported to Lancaster General Hospital after two tractor-trailers and two other vehicles collided shortly before 5 a.m., a county dispatch supervisor said.
It happened at Route 30 and North Oakview Road, near the state police barracks. Utility poles and wires were knocked down and traffic lights at the intersection were not working. A hazardous materials team was called because at least one of the saddle fuel tanks on a tractor-trailer had ruptured.
Route 30 East was closed at Route 340. Route 340 and Route 23 were being used as detour routes around the accident.
