GREENCASTLE, Pa. - An accident claimed the life of an unidentified man on Interstate 81 Friday afternoon when his compact pickup truck ran off the southbound lane of U.S. 11 onto the interstate and into the path of a tractor-trailer, Pennsylvania State Police said.
Police are withholding the victim's name pending notification of next of kin.
Three vehicles were involved in the 12:50 p.m. accident, which tied up traffic in both lanes of the interstate for about four hours, authorities said. Interstate traffic was detoured onto U.S. 11.
Two Canadian women in the third vehicle had minor injuries when the tractor-trailer struck their car after hitting the pickup. The car's driver, Brenda L. McKnight, 40, of 908 Hillside Ave., Toronto, was treated at Chambersburg Hospital and released. Information about the passenger, who was also taken to the hospital, was unavailable Friday night.
