Semi Truck Crashes into MRI Clinic, Killing One

Personal Injury Blog

The driver of a big-rig died in a truck accident late Monday night after his semi truck careened into a Carlisle PA medical clinic. The cause of the accident is unknown, and the troubling part is that there are no skid marks where the truck left the interstate.

Reports indicate that the truck, a milk tanker, left I-81 between College Street and Plainfield. After the big rig left the roadway, it landed on it’s side and slid into the Carlisle Regional Pain Management Clinic. Emergency personnel pronounced the driver dead at the scene.

Cleanup of the truck accident took longer than anticipated for a couple of reasons. First, the milk from the tanker had to be transferred to another truck to salvage what cargo was left. Also, an MRI machine inside the clinic was active at the time of the crash and providing a very strong magnetic pull. One of the firemen’s metal tools was actually stuck to the MRI machine.
