FOSTER TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Charges have been filed two years after a dump truck caused a chain reaction crash in a construction zone in Luzerne County.

The driver of the truck, Diego Aroca from New Jersey, is charged with aggravated assault and other violations including driving an overweight vehicle.
