CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - One man was in serious condition, two were in satisfactory condition and two others were treated at area hospitals and released Tuesday following two unrelated motor vehicle accidents on Interstate 81 in Franklin County, Pa.
Pennsylvania State Police in Chambersburg said both accidents occurred when drivers lost control of their vehicles following front tire blowouts.
The first accident occurred in the southbound lane about two miles north of the Maryland state line at around 3:20 p.m. That accident involved three men from Frederick, Md., who were riding in a 1992 Chevrolet pickup truck.
According to Trooper C.E. Gleichman, Marvin Bermodez, 30, was driving the pickup southbound when the right front tire blew, causing him to lose control. The truck ran off the east side of the roadway and rolled over once, ejecting one of the men.
