A tractor trailer overturned at the I-78 toll plaza in Northampton County Sunday morning.

State Police say it happened around 5:45 a.m. when a tractor trailer driven by Derrick Huffer of Louisiana was traveling west on I-78. The vehicle struck the guide-rail attenuator at the Williams Township toll plaza and overturned onto its right side.

As the tractor trailer overturned, it slid off the road and knocked down a sign and light pole.


Police say no one was injured.

As of 8:45 a.m., crews were still working to remove the vehicle.

Police say that while the overturned vehicle is blocking a few toll plaza lanes, other lanes remain open, allowing traffic to flow through.

At this point, there is no word on what caused the crash or if any charges will be filed.
