A Pennsylvania State Police spokesperson has confirmed that there were no serious injuries in a crash involving a tractor-trailer carrying merchandise connected to NASCAR driver Danica Patrick Thursday.
According to police the crash happened at mile marker 54 on eastbound Interstate 80 near the town of Knox Thursday when a tractor-trailer driven by 48-year-old John Cole, of Vandergrift, Pa., rear ended the hauler owned by Motorsports Authentics and driven by 35-year-old Guy Chappell, of Collingsville, VA. Chappell was at the end of a line of traffic that had slowed for a construction zone. Cole said he didn’t see the stopped traffic in time to react prior to the collision.
Eastbound Interstate 80 was closed for a time as personnel from the Knox volunteer fire department cleared the roadway of what the police spokesperson said was a large amount of NACAR merchandise scattered around the scene of the accident. MORE>>>
