Mount Joy, PA (November 9, 2019) – A 23-year-old woman was hospitalized following a serious truck accident at 1200 West Main Street in Mount Joy.
Authorities claim that the woman was driving on West Main when she entered another lane of travel and collided with a tractor-trailer.
The woman sustained serious injuries and her vehicle was severely damaged due to the collision.
Traffic at the roadway was blocked off for some time and eventually detoured for approximately three hours while police investigated.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and her family in hopes of a full recovery.
