HARRISBURG, Pa. - A Pennsylvania Turnpike worker was killed Sunday in an accident involving a tractor-trailer on the highway.
Officials say the truck entered a lane closed for maintenance and hit two workers.
It happened on the westbound side around 8 a.m. between the King of Prussia and Downington exits in Chester County.
Police say 61-year-old William McGuigan of Ardsley, Montgomery County, was killed in the accident.
He worked as an equipment operator for the turnpike commission for about nine years.
Maintenance foreman Steve Rudzik sustained minor injuries and was treated and released from Paoli Hospital. The truck driver was taken to a hospital. There was no immediate word on his condition.
The road was closed for several hours while police investigated the crash.
Gov. Tom Corbett said in a statement he was saddened by the news and extended sympathy to the McGuigan family.
