SOUTH ABINGTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A road in Lackawanna County was closed Thursday morning while crews cleaned up a crash.

Crews were working to free a truck hung up where Interstate 81 passes over Layton Road near Clarks Summit early Thursday morning.

Officials say the truck was going south on Interstate 81 when it crashed through a guide rail and ended up on Layton Road.

Layton Road was closed while crews worked to get that truck out. It reopened around 10:15 a.m.

There is no word on what led to the wreck.

    Only 1 Bash a Trucker so far, cmon keyboard warriors you can do better than that.
    Cars never get into accidents, all those vehicles in the junk yards are just trade ins that never sold.

    What if there were cars down below? This is the second time this has happened. Far be it from me to second guess some PennDOT engineer but shouldn’t something be done to prevent this from happening a third time?
