LCWC also confirmed that there was a diesel spill at the scene and was unable to confirm if the spill was contained or if any diesel entered Eshelman Run. PA Route 741 was heavily traveled by early morning commuters and commercial traffic as it served as the official detour throughout much of Thursday morning. By 11:AM Lincoln Highway was very congested. Fire crews still on the scene and directing traffic. Detours in place and many questions as to what exactly happened here this morning.
