A fatal crash on I-78 in Windsor Township, Berks County has resulted in at least two fatalities. The Wednesday-afternoon collision took place at 2:38pm near mile marker 32.5 on westbound I-78. Three additional people were also injured in the crash.
At the time of the incident, vehicles on I-78 had slowed as the interstate’s two westbound lanes merged into one. A tractor-trailer approaching the slowed vehicles failed to stop—colliding with a passenger vehicle and pushing it into the back of another tractor-trailer.
The resulting chain-reaction crash involved five tractor-trailers and the single passenger vehicle. A heavy fire followed—involving two tractor-trailers and the passenger vehicle. The fire closed all lanes of I-78 for more than four hours.
