MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

George Weed, 63, died Sunday morning from injuries sustained during a four-vehicle crash on Interstate 81.

According to investigators, the crash happened Friday and closed a section of I-81 for more than five hours near Exit 57 in Mechanicsburg.

Weed and his wife were driving in a Chevrolet Tahoe SUV when a tractor-trailer rear-ended them. Officials said Kathleen Weed, 64, of Pittsford died at the scene.

The tractor-trailer pushed the Tahoe SUV into another tractor-trailer, which hit a third truck ahead of it.

The crash is still under investigation, while troopers determine whether to file charges against the driver of the truck that hit the couple.

Anyone with information is asked to contact state police in Carlisle at 249-2121.
