Tractor Trailer Crashes into Restaurant Overnight; Driver Sent to Hospital

Around 2:45am,  emergency personnel were called to Russo's Pizza, on Route 61, near Orwigsburg for a tractor trailer into a building with entrapment.

When crews arrived, they found the tractor trailer driver heavily entrapped.  The driver was eventually freed around 5:30am, then was taken to a local hospital was unknown injuries.

Crews from around the county responded since the Schuylkill Rescue Task Force was called.  The West End Fire Company in Mahanoy City, Yorkville Technical Rescue in Pottsville and Orwigsburg Fire/Rescue Company all worked together to stabilize the damage to the building.

Route 61 was closed for a short period of time but is now open.
