Crash in the Poconos Tangles Interstate Traffic

POCONO TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A crash on Interstate 80 in Monroe County tied up traffic for hours Wednesday morning.

Two tractor-trailers collided around 9:30 a.m. on I-80 west just before the exit for I-380 north toward Scranton (293).

One driver was flown to a hospital.

The cleanup forced crews to block all three lanes of I-80 at the spot where the trucks crashed. Drivers had to wait for hours then drive single file on the shoulder to get around the wreck.

 

 

There is no word on the cause of the crash.
