Crash in Smithfield Township narrowly misses State Troopers

SMITHFIELD TWP., Pa. - Officials say Pennsylvania State Troopers escaped injury after two tractor trailers crashed in Monroe County.

Police were responding to a disabled vehicle on Interstate-80 in Smithfield Township just after midnight on Monday.

Officials say a tractor trailer was attempting to merge onto the highway behind the State Police cruiser when it collided with another tractor trailer, narrowly missing the Troopers.

No one was hurt, but I-80 was shut down for more than two hours while crews cleaned up the mess.
