LA PLUME TOWNSHIP, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – A skiff of overnight snow Friday morning may have been a contributing factor to a big rig accident in Lackawanna County.

Routes six and 11 were down to a single lane following the accident which happened about 8:30 Friday morning.

The 18 wheeler lost control and went into a ditch, and the cab struck a rock embankment.

The driver was said to have only minor injuries.

The highways were reduced to a single lane while crews removed the damage tractor-trailer and cleaned up a fuel spill.
