WHITE HAVEN BOROUGH, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Crews were not having an egg-cellent time cleaning up an interstate after a tractor-trailer crash on Interstate 80 Friday night in Luzerne County.

It happened just before 7 p.m. at mile marker 271.4 in the westbound lane. According to Pennsylvania State Police Hazleton, a tractor-trailer was attempting to transition from the left lane to the right lane when it made contact with another vehicle.

After making contact, the driver over-corrected and the trailer left the road, turning onto its side. 41,000 pounds of eggs had to be cleaned up before the trailer could be towed from the scene.

No injuries were reported.
