One woman dead after crash closes northbound lanes of I-83 at Exit 32

YORK COUNTY — One woman is dead and a crash closed down all lanes of northbound Interstate 83 at Exit 32 (Newberrytown – PA 382) for several hours.

Crews were dispatched to the scene around 9:50 p.m. on Wednesday night.

The crash involved a tractor trailer, a truck, and at least three other vehicles.

The York County Coroner says that Terrena Carson, 43, of Harrisburg, was pronounced dead at York Hospital at 10:47 p.m. on Wednesday.

The first crash occurred when a Ford-F250 struck the rear end of a Dodge 1500 truck. That impact caused the Ford to strike a concrete median which left it disabled partially in the left lane of Interstate 83.

Initial reports from State Police say that Carson was driving a Jeep and was involved in the second of two crashes.

Both Carson and a tractor trailer attempted to avoid the Ford-F250 before colliding.

Carson’s Jeep was reportedly struck by a tractor trailer after that tractor trailer had hit a disabled pickup truck. The Jeep proceeded to crash into a tow truck before flipping on its side.

As of 7:50 a.m Thursday morning, I-83 NB has reopened.

The West Shore School District sent out this message to parents regarding the crash:
