Three Hurt in Wrong-way Crash on I-81

HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- State police say a wrong-way driver caused a head-on crash on Interstate 81.

The crash closed the northbound lanes of I-81 just south of Wilkes-Barre around 5 p.m. Sunday, backing up traffic for miles in Luzerne County.

Troopers say a man in his 70s was going south in the northbound lanes for about two miles. One vehicle swerved to avoid him, but the wrong-way driver hit another vehicle head on.

The wrong-way driver as well as the driver and a passenger in the other vehicle were taken to the hospital.

State police said the wrong-way driver faces several traffic citations.

The interstate was back open about an hour later.

    Labor Day is one of Pete Moss’ favorite holidays. More traffic on the highways so he gets to gloat over peoples pain and suffering when there’s an accident. Instead of asking why so many people are able to get on 81 going the wrong way he just rolls back in his chair, farts, picks the furry costume lint out of his naval, and says – life is good. It’s also one of his favorites because there’s a better chance of scoring in the rest areas. How about it, good buddy?

      HEY STUNAD
      Your just a sorry azzed Jabroni
      ( Loser ) because you haven’t been able to BASH A TRUCKER in quite awhile.

      Like you ever cared of what led to an accident by jumping curbs, hitting itty bitty buildings, poles, trees, Police directing traffic, rollovers, driving under tractor trailers and wrong way drivers.
      ALL IN CARS AND SUV’s

      Bwaak! Stunad Bwaak! Loser Bwaak! Itty bitty buildings. Polly want a cracker! Hey, it’s supposed to be really hot the next couple of days, so be sure to stay hydrated. Those furry costumes and that Super Mario outfit must really make you sweat.

      From the NHTSA: “In 2013, large trucks accounted for 4 percent of all registered vehicles and 9 percent of total vehicle miles traveled on the Nation’s roadways. Large trucks accounted for 9 percent of all vehicles involved in fatal crashes and 3 percent of all vehicles in injury and property-damage-only crashes.” Let that sink in for a while, stunad. I can bash a trucker because the majority of the accidents are caused by careless, reckless cowboys that think they own the road. I’ve logged well over a million accident free miles, so I think that earns me the right to call out drivers that give the occupation a bad name.

      HEY STUNAD
      I’m glad you brought up the million miles.
      Many trucks have indeed gone 1 million miles and more, with and without accidents, however the same cannot be said for cars and SUV’s, including the same driver using multiple vehicles to achieve the million mile mark.
      Our nations junk yards full of cars will attest to that.
      Again you claim to be a former driver just as your other moniker
      Blister Licker ( Puss Sucker ).
      BTW you forgot
      Hitting Police directing traffic too, I guess they are extra points.
      Oh yeah and a Forest Gump

      Such a Jabroni ( Loser ).

      OMG you are dense. OK, I’ll help you out here: If Super Mario has 100 mushrooms and 4% of them are great big mushrooms that hit PennDOT trucks, how many are left to get eaten? Answer = 96. So that explains that. I hope. I’m convinced you are that Rusty Knyffe buffoon, he never quit when he was losing either.

      (facepalm) I give up – I explained it to you in terms I thought you would understand – you still didn’t get it… How do you function? I just lost IQ points reading your last post.
