GREENWICH TWP., Pa. -

The snow made travel treacherous throughout the day Monday.

Emergency crews responded to one accident after another as Mother Nature created a messy and miserable commute for drivers.

69 News was on scene during a close call in Leesport, Berks Co., when a tractor trailer and pickup truck collided on Route 61.

"He tried to stop for the stoplight, missed the vehicle, swerved around that. I don't know how he missed that and ended up going through the intersection," said Sgt. Brian Horner, Northern Berks Regional Police Dept.

Luckily, no one was hurt.

In Greenwich Township, a tractor trailer jackknifed and blocked both westbound lanes of Interstate 78 near the Krumsville interchange.

It happened around 10 a.m., and crews worked hard to clear the scene so motorists didn't get stranded on the snowy highway.

In West Lawn, the driver of a Mercedes couldn't stop and slammed into the back of a truck on Penn Avenue.

"The roads are really icy. The snow is packed down, so it's really rocky, really rough to drive, and you're shaking," said one driver. "It's really hard."

"Trying to keep these roads clear almost like a never-ending job. The snow has not stopped, so once the plows come through, they are almost immediately covered with snow again," said another.

Many businesses were open, but for many places, the customers were few and far between.

Plows were expected to be out throughout the night to clear the mess away, but another winter storm is right around the corner.
