Accident Involving Semi Closes Route 222

Saturday night was hectic following a messy accident, which shut down an intersection of Route 222 and Penn Avenue in Spring Township, Pennsylvania. The accident happened early in the evening, and involved a semi truck, van, and motorcycle. Hector Rentas of Lancaster was traveling westbound on Penn Avenue when he lost control of his motorcycle, ran across the median, and crossed onto oncoming traffic on Route 222. Additionally, Rentas hit the side of a van driven by Ellen Benton of Reinholds, and then crashed into the tractor-trailer driven by Luis Pallero of Reading.

Miraculously Rentas survived the crash, and was rushed to a nearby hospital. It was not reported whether or not Rentas was wearing a helmet, but it's suspected he was and therefore able to survive the accident. Both the van and tractor-trailer driver were not injured in the crash. The accident blocked southbound lanes for a number of hours, and re-opened early the next morning. The exact cause of the accident is still be investigated by local police.
