Crash Closes Route 46

Route 46 in Keating Township was closed for about two hours yesterday after a truck crashed into two utility poles.

Police say the driver of a Freightliner, whose name they didn't release, fell asleep at the wheel, causing the truck to veer off the road and hit a mailbox, the utility poles and a tree.

Penelec and Verizon responded to the scene to repair utility services.

The road was closed because the utility wires were on the ground.
