Two injured after pickup crosses yellow lines into oncoming semi truck

A pickup truck crossed into oncoming traffic on Tuesday morning, causing a crash with a semi truck that sent both drivers to the hospital.

The head on collision occurred on December 5th on Route 903 in Penn Forest Township, Pennsylvania.

Police say the tractor trailer was traveling on Route 903 near Old Stage Road when an oncoming pickup crossed over the yellow lines and drifted into its lane, causing a head on collision that destroyed both vehicles.

WFMZ reported that the trucker was taken to a nearby hospital with only minor injuries. The pickup driver suffered severe injuries in the crash and was also transported to a hospital. Neither driver has been identified.

A portion of Route 903 at Old Stage Road was closed for several hours as crews worked to clear the debris. The road has since been reopened.

Officials are still investigating the reason why the pickup crossed into oncoming traffic and no citations have been issued.
