Tractor Trailer Crashes On Interstate 70, Driver Hospitalized

By Alpert Schreyer on September 15, 2016

EMTWednesday morning a tractor trailer was involved in an accident on westbound Interstate 70 near Big Pool, MD, part of the Hagerstown Metropolitan Area.

The accident happened near the 13 mile marker on Interstate 70 shortly after 9:00am.  State police were notified and Western Troop Commander Michael Fluharty reported that when troopers arrived they found the truck on its side.  The tractor trailer driver, identified as Jason Gillard from Texas, lost control of the truck and smashed into trees along the westbound lanes.

State police reported that after they freed the driver from the truck, an ambulance then took him to a medevac helicopter and he was flown to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center.

Rescue crews were working on removal of the truck at about 10:45am and traffic was reduced to one lane at the scene of the accident.  The truck belonged to Wayne W. Sell Trucking Corp. of Sarver, PA and was reportedly carrying a large metal object which hasn’t been identified.  All lanes were opened around 4:30pm and there are no details yet on what may have caused the accident.
