DAUPHIN, Pa. (WHTM) -

Both lanes are now open on Route 22/322, after a tractor trailer crash on Monday afternoon in Middle Paxton Township, according to PennDOT officials. 

Since Monday the road has had on and off restrictions to one lane, as they cleaned up the area.

Police said the driver of the truck lost control and went over an embankment, landing in the Susquehanna River.

The tractor-trailer was carrying 1500 containers of strawberry Pop-Tarts.

The driver suffered minor injuries, police said. People who were passing by jumped into the river to save the driver.

About 100 gallons of fuel leaked out but has been contained, police said.
