Centre Daily Times

Update: Crash closes Route 322; 1 driver dead

POTTER TOWNSHIP — One driver is dead and another escaped a burning truck after a vehicle crash this morning about 1 mile west of Potters Mills that led to the closure of U.S. Route 322.

Route 322 between the Harley Davidson store and Potters Mills is closed in both directions. A detour has been set up, redirecting traffic to state Route 144 and Route 45.

Centre Hall Fire Chief Chad Packer estimated Route 322 would reopen by 3 p.m.

The three-vehicle crash occurred about 9 a.m. near Cider Press Road. An east-bound truck hauling coal and a hybrid car traveling west collided.

Packer said the woman driving the hybrid car died at the scene.

He said the coal truck caught fire on impact with the car. The truck driver had burnt hair but managed to get out of the truck safely. See scene pictures.
