Details of the I-80 Crash in Mercer County, PA
A 12-vehicle crash happened at 3:32 p.m. on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 during near-white-out conditions on I-80. Police say the collisions resulted from a tractor-trailer that had jackknifed across the road. A second tractor-trailer could not stop in time and hit the first trailer, splitting it in two and scattering cargo across the lanes. Due to poor visibility, more vehicles continued to strike the semi-trucks, leading to a pileup crash. Of the 12 vehicles involved, nine to ten were commercial vehicles.
Many people were trapped inside their cars following the collisions. Four people were seriously injured. Due to the snowstorm and road closures, helping the victims was particularly difficult. The West Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department used ATVs to reach them. A school bus transported other victims to safety in West Middlesex.
