Tractor-trailer crashes into York Springs home

Posted: Updated:

A tractor-trailer driver who swerved to avoid a crash collided with a parked minivan and a home Tuesday afternoon in Adams County.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Main and State streets in York Springs after a car pulled into the path of the big truck at around 2:30 p.m., police said.

Trooper Robert Hicks, a state police spokesman, said the truck was hauling 18,000 dozen eggs on Main Street when, for unknown reasons, the driver of a Subaru Impreza passed a stop sign on State Street.

The truck driver, 34-year-old Jonathan Lambert of Shermans Dale, braked and swerved to avoid the Subaru but could not stop in time. The Impreza was broadsided and pushed about 80 yards into a yard on the east side of Main Street, Hicks said.

The tractor-trailer then struck a parked Honda minivan, pushing it over the sidewalk, through a utility pole, two fences, a bicycle and into the side of a home on the west side of Main Street.

The driver of the Subaru, 19-year-old Jacob Levin of Harrisburg, was flown by helicopter to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.

Lambert walked away with minor injuries. No other people were injured.

The crash is still under investigation.
