Horse Trailer Involved in Multi-Vehicle Crash

LAFLIN — Route 315 in part of Luzerne County was shut down for a while Wednesday afternoon after a crash.

Authorities said at least five vehicles crashed at the intersection of Route 315 and Pittston Avenue near Pittston.

One of the vehicles was a horse trailer with horses on board. They are expected to be ok.

Police said two people were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

    There are always people slamming on the brakes when heading south because the northbound traffic just cuts right across the middle of the road. A new light is a great idea, almost a near disaster daily.

    That intersection needs a traffic light. Has needed it since the casino opened. Sometimes the wait to turn on pittston blvd is a few minutes. alot of big trucks use this intersection.
