There is currently no word on how many vehicles were involved in the crash. However, PennDOT has confirmed that no serious injuries occurred and that some asphalt leaked out of the truck after it crashed.
Teams are now waiting for an empty tanker truck to arrive so that the excess asphalt can be removed. That process should take approximately three to four hours, according to PennDOT.
