Pa. Turnpike Now Open Between Lebanon-Lancaster and Reading

Tractor trailer accident has been cleared.
A 20-mile section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike between the Lebanon-Lancaster Interchange (Exit #266) and the Reading Interchange (#286) that was closed eastbound due to a tractor trailer accident at milepost 267.1 is now open.

Crews removed the debris and the overturned tractor trailer which was blocking all lanes of travel eastbound. The roadway is now clear and eastbound traffic is once again moving.
