Tractor-trailer overturns on Vine Street, driver receives minor injuries

A tractor-trailer hauling water overturned on Vine Street in Londonderry Twp. on Wednesday morning, June 24.

The 1998 Mack truck overturned onto its passenger side as the driver tried to turn left onto Vine Street from the Interstate 283 East ramp at about 8:30 a.m., according to Pennsylvania State Police.

The driver, identified by police as Jesse A. Saulnier, 39, of Dover, received minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital. Saulnier was wearing a lap and shoulder belt, police said.

No other vehicles were involved. The tractor-trailer was hauling water, which spilled onto the roadway just outside Rutter's. The right lane of Vine Street heading toward Hummelstown was closed for about an hour until workers could set the tractor-trailer upright and tow it away.
