A crash on I-83 in Paxtang Borough involving nearly a dozen vehicles has killed three people and injured 6 others, according to State Police.  

The crash happened around 8:30 p.m. Saturday between Exit 46B for Rt. 322 East toward Hershey, and Exit 48 for Union Deposit Road. 

The highway was closed until early Saturday morning while State Police investigated. 

State Police said the crash involved 11 vehicles and a tractor trailer. A sedan and a large pickup truck were pinned between that tractor trailer and the concrete median.

A man who says he was driving that pinned truck told abc27 that he was stopped in construction traffic when he heard screeching behind him. Suddenly, he says, the tractor trailer slammed into his vehicle which ended up on its side, facing the wrong direction. The man told us he had to turn the car back on and climb out the window in order to get out with his girlfriend.

The driver of the other car that was pinned reportedly had to climb out of her sunroof.

The six people hurt were taken to local hospitals to be treated. 

The Dauphin County Coroner's Office is working with the State Police to contact the family members of the people killed.
