Rig, Train Crash At Crossing

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT — A train plowed into a tractor-trailer in Lycoming County.

It happened around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of Riverside Drive and Maynard Street in South Williamsport.

Police believe the truck was stopped at a red light, with part of its trailer still on the tracks when the train hit.

No one was hurt. 

Authorities are trying to figure out why the crossing signal didn’t alert the truck driver.

Two streets in South Williamsport were closed for hours as crews worked into the morning to clear the mess.
