State police in Lebanon County are responding to an incident on Interstate 81 in Schuylkill County.

Authorities said a tractor trailer flipped over near mile marker 100 in Pine Grove Township on Saturday morning.

Southbound lanes are currently closed, and officials told abc27 they believe those lanes will remain closed for a few hours.

The tractor trailer was carrying electronic equipment, so there is no concern over spilled contents. However the truck will have to be unloaded before authorities can right it.

Police reported that the driver of the tractor trailer and a passenger were sent to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

abc27 will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
