Interstate shut down for seven hours when Cadillac tries to weave between semi trucks 


A Cadillac tries to weave between two semi trucks in Pennsylvania on Wednesday night, leading to a serious crash that closed the interstate for nearly seven hours. 

The accident happened on November 30th at around 10:15 p.m. in Swatara Township, Pennsylvania on the northbound side of Interstate 83 between Exit 44B: 19th Street and Exit 46B: US 322 East- Hershey.

According to WGAL 8 News, a Kenworth was traveling in the northbound right lane of I-83 with the Cadillac behind it, while a Freightliner was traveling in the left lane, slightly behind the Cadillac, with a Yukon behind it. 

The Cadillac then changed lanes in front of the Freightliner and was struck from behind. The Freightliner then lost control and struck the Kenworth before striking the concrete median and coming to a rest in the left lane. The Yukon then crashed into the wrecked Freightliner. 

No one was hurt in the crash, but the Freightliner, Cadillac, and Yukon were all totaled and had to be towed from the scene. The Kenworth sustained only some damage to its trailer. 

The roadway was shut down for seven hours as crews worked to clear the wreckage and clean diesel spilled in the accident. 

It is unclear if any citations were issued as a result of the incident.
