Maryland State Police investigating fatal crash on EB I-70
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (WBFF) -- Maryland State Police are on scene of a fatal tractor trailer crash on east bound I-70, right past Route 65 in Hagerstown.
Police say the tractor trailer ran off the right side of the road and down an embankment before coming into contact with a tree. The tractor trailer is the only vehicle involved in the crash, police said.
Police say the driver was pronounced dead on the scene. Police say fuel from the tractor trailer will be off-loaded to prevent any type of spillage into the Antietam Creek once the truck is removed from the scene.
The shoulder and one other lane are open so expect traffic delays. Police say that traffic delays will continue throughout the morning.
