Two Killed, One Pinned In Auto Accident

On October 20, 2003 at 1:01 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to Interstate 81 North bound just south of Exit 29 in Southampton Cumberland for an auto accident with entrapment. For unknown reasons a car crossed the median and collided with a tractor-trailer, the car was torn apart and despite wearing seat belts both occupants were ejected from the car and killed. The tractor-trailer jackknifed and came to rest on top of another car trapping the driver and his cat. Crews remained on the scene until after 4 p.m. The Vigilant Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies operated at the scene.
