Eastbound lanes of Route 283 have been reopened at Spooky Nook Road in East Hempfield Township after two vehicle accidents this morning, police said.
A motorcycle struck a vehicle between Spooky Nook Road and Landisville Road around 7:45 a.m., township police Lt. Tammy Marsh said. That crash forced traffic to abruptly stop, resulting in another five-vehicle crash involving a tractor-trailer.
Three motorists were injured and taken to a hospital for evaluation, she said. One lane of the road was reopened to traffic before 8:30 a.m. and the other was reopened 15 minutes later.
Hempfield and East Petersburg firefighters, Susquehanna Valley EMS and Lancaster EMS assisted police.
