One person died after their tractor trailer caught fire on the turnpike at mile marker 302 in Morgantown on Tuesday.

An unidentified driver of a tractor-trailer was killed Tuesday night on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near mile marker 302 in Morgantown. The vehicle caught fire and was reported to be fully involved when emergency crews arrived. Twin Valley Fire and Glen Moore Fire Company responded to the incident. The fire caused a road closure on the westbound lanes of the turnpike between Morgantown and Downingtown. The Immaculata University women’s basketball game against Lancaster Bible College and Downingtown East’s state semifinal field hockey game were each postponed due to the traffic delays. No further information was immediately available Tuesday night.
