Big rig crash closes I-80 for several hours

POCONO TWP – A tractor trailer loaded with flour crashed around midnight this morning, near Tannersville, shutting down the westbound lanes for about six hours.

Police say it appears the eastbound truck was going too fast, went through a construction zone and ended up crashing dumping its load in the westbound lanes.  The highway reopened about 6:00 a.m., just as the morning rush was beginning.
