Tractor-trailer jacknifes on Route 15

A Virginia truck driver escaped injury when his empty tractor-trailer truck jackknifed in the northbound lanes of Route 15, three miles north of Trout Run, about 6:20 p.m. Wednesday, state police said. The driver, whose identity was not released, climbed out of the rig on his own. Even though both northbound lanes were blocked, motorists were able to get around the truck by going on the berm. Workers operating a heavy-duty tow truck arrived on the scene about 7:45 p.m. and began cleaning up the mishap. Trout Run volunteer firefighters responded to the accident.
