UPDATE: I-380 South Back Open After Crashes in Lackawanna County

COVINGTON TOWNSHIP -- Wrecks involving a bus and a box truck also stalled the morning commute for hundreds of drivers in Lackawanna County.

Both lanes of Interstate 380 south were shut down from around 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. It happened between the Daleville and Gouldsboro exits.

Emergency crews say freezing rain caused two wrecks. First, a bus slid off the highway. The 10 people on board weren't hurt.

Shortly after that, the driver of this box truck tried slowing down and crashed.

"I started to break and I lost control," said Waldy Mizynski. "It's slippery like hell."

"A sheet of ice, sheet of ice. Guys just trying to go too fast and this is what happens," George Marcinkevich said.

Both lanes of Interstate 380 south between the Daleville and Gouldsboro exits are back open.

      Penn dot is the worst. they do not maintain roads worth a damn , can’t plow worth a damn, or salt either. once this hit, if not before, those trucks should have been salting and sanding for hours. all those accidents are their fault completely. they should pay all related expenses, the whole department needs re structuring, and those in charge need to go to PRISON, for they are endangering people’s lives with their incompetence in road mnaintenance
