A car was pinned between a concrete median and a semi-truck and trailer in the southbound lanes of Pennsylvania's I-476, which is also known as the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. According to police, the 49-year-old driver of the tractor trailer did not obey the traffic signs posted that instructed all trucks to stay in the left lane and that is what caused the accident.
The truck accident happened at the 24.8 mile market in Whitpain Township and involved a Honda Civic. The driver of the semi-truck hit a concrete barrier on the right side of the roadway. According to authorities, this caused the driver to lose control and he swerved into the left lane. The truck hit the Honda, which was driven by an Allentown, Pennsylvania, man. The Honda then hit the concrete barrier in the middle of the turnpike and the car rolled over onto its passenger's side. The semi-truck came to a rest against the upturned car. The driver's side of the Honda was facing upwards.
