UPDATE | Route 283 reopens following overturned tractor trailer


UPDATE: All Route 283 eastbound lanes are reopened after being closed for hours for an overturned tractor trailer.


A portion of the eastbound lanes of Route 283 is shut down Tuesday morning because of an overturned tractor trailer.

The accident happened near the Middletown/Hummelstown exit. The eastbound lanes are closed from the Middletown Road exit to the Toll House Road/PA 230 exit.

Officials say police have cleared the scene of the accident but PennDOT officials will be there until the lanes reopen. There's no word yet on when that is expected to happen.

Dauphin County Dispatch says the driver of the tractor trailer was not taken to the hospital.
