LOYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) – Authorities say a double tractor-trailer crash in Pennsylvania killed a Maryland man and about 100 pigs.
State police say the two tractor-trailers collided on state Route 850 Friday afternoon in Northeast Madison Township, about 30 miles west of Harrisburg.
The coroner’s office has identified the man who died as 67-year-old George Elser, of Hancock, Maryland.
PennLive.com reports that Perry County Coroner Michael Shalonis says the other tractor-trailer had been carrying 250 to 400 pigs, each weighing about 35 pounds. The driver of that vehicle suffered no apparent injuries.
Police are investigating.
