A truck accident claimed one life on January 31 in Pennsylvania just across the Jersey state line, according to NJ.com. The wreck caused delays on the toll bridge over the Delaware River in the eastbound lanes in Williams Township. Both a tractor trailer and a box truck were involved in the collision.
The box truck rolled over on its side about one mile west of the New Jersey state line. The tractor-trailer apparently rear-ended the box truck. The cab became separated from the trailer and sat in the median. The driver of the box truck died at the scene. Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek identified the deceased driver as a 58-year-old male. The driver of the semi-truck, Alexandro Luis Morales, was uninjured.
Two other unrelated accidents in the area contributed to traffic problems as well. Police continue to investigate the accident and suspect driver error to be the cause of the accident.
