PSP Roundup: Three car crash at Lincoln Way East and I-81 caused by impaired driver

20 November 2023- Pennsylvania State Police say that a multicar pileup on Friday evening in Franklin County was the result of a drunk driver.

Police, Fire and EMS were called to I-81NB at mile marker 16, the onramp to the interstate, around 6:45pm on Friday. The driver of a 2016 Jeep Compass was exiting the interstate onto the surface road at the same time the driver of a 2015 Nissan Murano was, as well. While the two vehicles were stopped at the intersection, a 2016 Jeep Wrangler driven by a 32 year old Chambersburg woman failed to stop and crashed directly into the two vehicles.

The driver of the Wrangler, who’s name has not been released, was subsequently arrested by PSP on charges of suspicion of DUI. All three vehicles were able to be driven from the scene of the crash.
