One Crash Led to Another on Interstate 81 in Lackawanna County

MOOSIC, Pa. -- One crash led to another on Interstate 81 south in Lackawanna County.

A big rig driver says he slowed down for some debris on the highway just before hitting a car that was sideways in the road.

The car had already been involved in a crash around 3 a.m. on Thursday in Moosic.

No one was hurt.

Interstate 81 south was down to one lane while crews cleaned up here in Lackawanna County.

      For those who think a truck stops on a dime try this at your leisure.
      With a child’s empty wagon, run as fast as you can for 30′, then measure your stopping distance, now repeat this run with 200 lbs in the wagon and measure again.
      An 18 wheeler carries up to 60,000 lbs and maxes out at 80,000 lbs.

      Think twice when you decide to cut in front of a truck to make your turn or exit.

        Oh lest we forget the guy that that’s got his CDL revoked.
        So the idiot in the car a few weeks ago that I encountered on interstate 81 at 4AM, between Dunmore and the Scranton expressway, that was stopped in the passing lane, and as I approach the car the guy started going in reverse.
        So if I had hit him with my vehicle, I’m at fault.
        I don’t think so.

        BTW Mr Revoked CDL, where in this story does it say that the Fed Ex driver was given a citation ?
        That’s right nowhere, therefore he is not at fault.
        Also pertaining to my recent situation, technically being that the car was being operated in reverse, the car was going the WRONG WAY!!
        Oh no not another wrong way CAR.
