LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) — Route 30 has reopened in Lancaster following a two-vehicle crash involving a partially rolled-over dump truck and a passenger vehicle.

Officials say the dump truck was fully loaded with stone when it rolled over onto a passenger car in the area of Fruitville Pike, in Manheim Township.

Both drivers were trapped inside their vehicles requiring manual extrication. Crews were able to get both individuals out and transported to a hospital where they are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

An initial investigation determined the dump truck was attempted to change lanes and struck the passenger car while making the move. As a result, the stones inside the truck shifted, causing the vehicle to tip to one side.

Route 30 remained shut down for three hours as crews worked to clean everything up causing major traffic headaches at the height of the morning rush.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed this crash to contact the Manheim Township Police Department by calling 717-569-6401 or providing information electronically by clicking here.
