Wintry Weather Causes Crash in Luzerne County

PLAINS -- Get ready to shovel! The snow is piling up all over the area Wednesday morning.

The North Cross Valley Expressway in the Wilkes-Barre area was covered in snow.

The road is snow covered but that didn't stop drivers from heading out.

The slippery mess is getting the blame for this crash near Wilkes-Barre.

The big rig jackknifed just after midnight but traffic was able to get by here in Luzerne County.

    When a “professional” CDL-licensed tractor-trailer driver jackknives one should assume it’s result of idiot car drivers texting or driving stupidly. That CDL driver probably saved the lives of several other idiot car drivers. Should we call him a hero?? I’m sure he’s a hero. CDL drivers are faultless, right?

      I’m not aware of any reliable source that said it would be a “quick-moving” storm. The National Weather Serrvice issued a storm warning Monday afternoon extending from 4AM Tuesday through 5AM Wednesday (eg, a “slow-moving storm,) and subsequently re-issued their warning to extend further into Wednesday morning. Are you watching Facebook for weather reports again Barb?
