Police: Lancaster Co. crash might have been intentional

Posted: Updated:
LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police in Lancaster County are investigating a crash after finding 22 loose lug-nuts on a vehicle involved.

According to East Lampeter Township Police, Lavern Martin, 38, of Lancaster, was driving a concrete truck southbound on the 100 block of East Brook Road around 7:40 this morning when the rear tandem wheels came off of the truck.

Police say the wheels split, one traveling a half mile down the road and the other going into the northbound lanes, hitting the windshield of 62-year-old Glenn Eberly, of Ronks.

Eberly swerved to avoid a crash, went up on the guardrail, flipped over the bridge and landed in the creek. He was seat belted and was able to get himself out. Eberly was taken to Lancaster General Hospital with minor injuries.

Martin was able to pull over and stop.

When police arrived they found that four other wheels had loose lug-nuts, 22 total. Officers say this was not a coincident and believe someone intentionally loosened them.

At this time police do not have any suspects, but they are backtracking to see where the truck was before the accident.
