November 4th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

One lane of northbound Interstate 81 was closed for more than an hour prior to the Interstate 70 interchange after a multi-vehicle crash Friday morning. The Herald Mail reports a person who was entrapped in one of the vehicles was freed, according to a Washington County EMS supervisor.


Two people were transported to Meritus Medical Center near Hagerstown, Maryland State Police said. One other person refused treatment.

A white van was on its side on an embankment off the right shoulder of the northbound lanes, while another vehicle stopped on the shoulder had heavy damage.


Williamsport and Halfway fire companies were dispatched to the scene at 7:26 a.m., according to the supervisor.
