Scrap truck rolls over at Exit 14 off-ramp leading into Tarentum

Tarentum, Pa. – Pennsylvania State Police along with Tarentum Fire and EMS were dispatched to a single vehicle roll-over of a tractor trailer at the bottom of the Northbound exit ramp (14) that leads into Tarentum Borough.

The truck, hauling scrap iron, flipped on it’s side spilling its contents over the guiderail. Tarentum’s Deputy Chief Brad James said the male driver of the truck had non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic exiting Northbound 28 must exit at the stop sign at the bottom of the ramp, then turn hard right towards Tarentum. Sources reported the ramp itself would be closed for a period of time while cleanup crews upright the rig and remove the metal debris from between the roadway surfaces.
