GORDON -- Another tractor trailer has crashed on Gordon Mountain Road in Schuylkill County, making three crashes on that same stretch of road in as many days.

Authorities confirm a tractor trailer wrecked just before 6 p.m. Friday.

Photos of the wreck sent in by viewers show the flipped truck and spilled bottles of orange juice, leaving another big mess for crews to clean up.

A truck carrying lumber crashed on Thursday and another crashed into a car and went off the road Wednesday.

    Well if it was juice it was probably heading for Walmart or Wegman’s distro (which is okay), but when you get off of I-81 there is enough postings to tell you don’t go down this part of the road. Driver error on this one.

    If they’d update that highway some maybe they wouldn’t have so many problems…Besides loaded trailers aren’t supposed to be coming down that mountain, it’s limited to 21,000 pounds which is a tractor and realistically no trailer.
