Route 247 Reopened After Crash

JEFFERSON TWP -- Route 247 in Lackawanna County is back open after a crash Saturday closed traffic in both directions.

According to police, it happened around ten Saturday morning when a car swiped a tractor trailer near Mount Cobb.

The truck leaked fuel, and crews had the road closed for nearly six hours to clean up the mess.

The road opened back up around 4:00 p.m. Saturday.

    If I remember correctly, there are signs at the top of 247 in MT Cobb and on the bottom of 247 that says it is a truck restricted route – so why was the big rig on there to begin with ?
