Brigantine, NJ, Man Killed in Six-vehicle Crash on I-476 in PA
Published reports say a man from Brigantine was killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 476 in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania Friday evening.
According to WBRE-TV, the crash happened around 6 PM on the Northeast Extension just north of the Lehigh Valley Tunnel between Exit 74 for Mahoning Valley/Jim Thorpe and Exit 95 for Interstate 80.
A person who passed the scene said that it appeared that a southbound tractor trailer jackknifed and crashed through the concrete median and partially entered the northbound lanes.
Drone footage shows a tractor-trailer's cab on one side of the highway, and its trailer stretched across the other side.
Six vehicle were involved in the crash and four people were injured.
A 20-mile section of the Extension was closed for several hours and the road didn't fully reopen until 5:00 the following morning.
