The incident happened at about 4:41 p.m. at around mile marker 4, the Shrewsbury exit in Shrewsbury Township. The driver of the big rig escaped injury.

Traffic resumed moving in one northbound lane in less than an hour.  Pennsylvania State Police are investigating.

May want to steer clear of 83 north for a little bit…tractor trailer fire, hope everyone is ok.
