For the second straight Friday, an accident involving a tractor trailer wreaked havoc on Route 422 travelers in Berks County.
The accident happened around 8:45 a.m. on Route 422 West at Pineland Road in Exeter Township.
The big rig tried to slow down for slowing traffic, but the driver lost control and the tractor trailer hit the median, police said.
Westbound lanes were closed while eastbound traffic was reduced to one lane so crews could clean up debris.
No injuries were reported.
This is the second straight Friday that an accident involving a tractor trailer closed this stretch of Route 422.
In the crash on Oct. 17, a tractor trailer and a car collided on 422 at Lincoln Road, causing the truck to roll onto its side and trap the injured driver in the cab. The truck’s load of dehydrated waste spilled across all four lanes of the highway, closing it between Lorane Road and Route 345.
