Tractor-Trailer Crash With Fire between Smethport and Port Allegany

Tractor -Trailer Crashed & Burned On Route 6

UPDATED- 12:42 pm and PHOTO At 1490 NewsBlog

At 2:00 am on Wednesday, Port Allegany Dept. 3 and Port Allegany Ambulance responded to a tractor-trailer accident on Route 6 near the Jehovah Witness Church west of Port Allegany in Liberty Township, where a tractor-trailer was completely involved in fire.

The driver, Scott M. Moyer, 41, of Port Allegany, PA., was self-extricated, according to the dispatch, and told the 911 center by cell phone that the rig was on fire, but there was no hazardous cargo in trailer.

Troopers said Moyer was driving a 2000 Mack CH4 tractor-trailer east on Route 6 when he fell asleep. The rig crossed over into the westbound lane of travel, exited the north berm of the highway, and struck a tree. The rig continued to travel east and came to rest in the middle of the roadway, completely blocking Route 6.

A large amount of diesel fuel was reported to have leaked from the saddle tanks.

Port Allegany Ambulance and Medic 16 transported Moyer to Charles Cole Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. He will be cited for traffic violations including Reckless Driving in District Court 48-3-02.

Moyer was wearing a seat belt.

An engine and tanker from Smethport, Station 2 was sent to the scene to assist Star Hose Company. Roulette Dept. 46 responded to Port Allegany for mutual aid standby.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by Port Allegany Fire Department, PennDOT, and Portville Trucking.

Smethport and Port Allegany Fire Police closed Route 6 for several hours while the fire was extinguished and wreckage removed.

Many truck accidents of late. Some with happy endings, some without. We may see many more with the influx of the gas boom.
