PLAINS TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A truck crash slowed traffic Monday in Luzerne County.

The rig carrying lumber clipped a car and ended up in the embankment on Route 115 outside of Wilkes-Barre Monday morning.

Police say the driver of the car deliberately ran it off the road to stop the out of control truck.

The driver of the rig is getting a ticket because trucks are banned here.

One person was hurt.

Route 115 was down to one lane. PennDOT said the wreck was cleared up by about 10:45 p.m.
