Commercial trucking accidents happen all the time, though they do not generally involve two commercial vehicles. Nevertheless, that is exactly what happened early this morning in Berks County when two tractor-trailers collided on the I-78. All westbound lanes throughout the area were closed for a long period of time due to the devastating crash.
According to officials, the I-78 westbound lanes through Greenwich Township were reopened at approximately 10:30 this morning. The accident that took place before 2:30 a.m. took so long to clean up as crews had to clear the extensive wreckage and right the trucks. While most motor vehicle accidents lead to extensive damage, this particular crash resulted in specifically heavy damage to both vehicles. Currently, the cause of the crash is still under investigation, and there is no word as to the seriousness of any injuries.
