Monday November 22, 2021 @ 1:30 PM NLCRPD responded to the report of a tractor-trailer accident that occurred on Doe Run Road near Cool Spring Road.  On scene Officers discovered that a tractor-trailer, owned by Kreider’s Farm and driven by employee James WEAVER of Lancaster, had been traveling east bound on Doe Run Road when the truck exited the south side of the roadway.  The tractor-trailer continued approximately 100 yards through a meadow before coming to an abrupt stop in several feet of mud. 

With assistance from members of the fire company and other passing motorists, Officers were able to navigate the muddy terrain and reach WEAVER who was semiconscious inside the cab of the truck. WEAVER was removed and transported by EMS to the hospital for further evaluation and treatment.  There were no other vehicles involved and no other persons injured. Doe Run Road was closed for several hours while Weaver’s Towing facilitated the removal of the tractor-trailer from the meadow.     

The cause of the accident is currently under investigation by the NLCRPD.  Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to contact Corporal Tony Smith at 717-733-0965.
