UPDATE: Overturned tractor-trailer closes ramp onto Route 147

MILTON – Two ramps onto Route 147 south in the Milton area are closed after a tractor-trailer overturned early Tuesday morning. Central Susquehanna Regional 911 tells us the accident occurred just after 4:40 a.m. Tuesday on the on-ramp between Broadway  (Route 254) and Route 147 south in the borough.

PennDOT tells us the ramp from Broadway (Route 254) to Route 147 south, and from Route 147 south to Mahoning Street (Route 642) at Milton are closed.

The 911 center says the ramp will be closed until the scene is cleared, as it was a gasoline tanker that overturned. The 911 center says there may be a minor injury reported. Volunteers from Milton, Warrior Run, Turbot Township, Pottsgrove, Washingtonville, Mifflinburg, Point Township, and Hummels Wharf responded. Additional response from William Cameron fire company, and Merck & Company (foam) also are assisting at the scene.
