LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.– A tractor trailer struck a PennDOT contractor vehicle leaving one person injured, and closing a portion of Route 222 for what is expected to be several hours.

According to PennDOT, around 3:50 a.m. on June 14, a tractor trailer struck a PennDOT contractor vehicle near mile marker 48.5 on Route 222 Southbound in Brecknock Township.

One person was injured in the crash, but the extent of their injuries is unknown at this time.
