State police at Rockview have released more information on the tractor-trailer rollover and entrapment that occurred at 1:05 p.m. Friday on Interstate 80 in Marion Township.
According to police, driver Bonnie Barner, 52, of Howard, was negotiating a slight right curve in the roadway when the left trailer tires appeared to contact the concrete. This caused the trailer to sway and roll over.
The tractor-trailer traveled 65 feet on its side before coming to a stop in the middle of the on and off ramp at the 161 mile marker in Spring Township.
Barner suffered “major” injury and was flown to a hospital. Bellefonte EMS also responded to the scene.
Police did not respond to inquiry on the status of Barner.
