COOLBAUGH TOWNSHIP -- There have been three crashes in three days on Interstate 380, and they come after numerous others on that highway in recent months.
According to PennDOT, more than 300 crashes have happened on Interstate380 in Monroe County over the last five years.
Some drivers we spoke to were frightened by that number but say it's a tough problem to fix because they believe many of the crashes are due to operator error.
On Monday, a tractor trailer carrying scrap metal flipped on its side.
On Tuesday, there was another crash, this one involving a tractor-trailer and a car. Two teens were killed.
Two more trucks crashed early Wednesday morning.
Drivers in Monroe County are worried about what is happening.
"It's very sad especially this last crash, the last one, it was terrible. I don't know if there is anything that can be done," said Bob McGee of Moscow.
According to PennDOT officials, over the last five years, more than 80 crashes and one fatality has happened on Interstate 380 from the Mount Pocono exit to Interstate 80.
Throughout the whole county, there were more than 300 crashes with eight fatalities. Many of those crashes were due to operator error and not always speeding.
"There's not much that can be done. It's the people. That is the problem," said Arnell Dial of Mount Pocono.
"I think the truck traffic is out of control, definitely, between the garbage trucks and everything else," McGee added. "Somebody needs to do something about the trucks."
While some drivers believe it's tractor trailers causing most of these crashes, some tractor trailer drivers insist that is not the case.
"It's wrong because a lot of times people see a truck and they want to get in front of them. They will speed up to get in front of them. They slow down in front of the trucks. I mean we are hauling 80,000 pounds. It's not an easy job," said Richard Lugo of Mount Pocono.
Lugo has been a tractor trailer driver for 25 years. He believes if drivers and tractor trailer drivers can learn to share the road, things like this might not happen.
"Give them space. Respect the vehicles and do what you got to do. Stay away if you need to."
According to PennDOT, it's tough for them to fix this problem when most of the crashes are due to operator error. All they can do is ask drivers to drive appropriately and take the lives of themselves and others into account while behind the wheel.
