WILLIAMSPORT — A car flipped over on Greencastle Pike (Md. 63) after colliding with the back of an 18-wheeler Thursday morning, Trooper Pittman of the Maryland State Police said.

Nobody was injured, Pittman said.

The accident happened just past the exit ramp from westbound Interstate 70 (Exit 24) onto Greencastle Pike northbound.

The car was towed away upside down. The 18-wheeler was able to be driven from the scene.

One lane of Greencastle Pike at its intersection with French Lane was closed for more than an hour after the accident due to liquid in the roadway. The lane reopened shortly before 9 a.m.

The Maryland State Highway Administration was on the scene directing traffic.

Police responded to the accident at around 7:38 a.m. Tuesday, a supervisor for Washington County Emergency Services said. State police arrived at about 7:45, Pittman said.

Pittman said a firetruck from the Williamsport Volunteer Fire Co. was initially on the scene but had departed by 8:05 a.m. Deputy Crowder of the Washington County Sheriff's Office, who was in the area at the time of the accident, also assisted. Pittman said the Maryland State Police are responsible for incidents on Greencastle Pike.
