A Harrisburg man died on Monday afternoon, July 2nd, 2018 in a crash involving
two tractor-trailers and a box truck.
Arquimides Flores, 33, passed away due to injuries he suffered when his
vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer, said state police.
At the time of the crash, Flores' vehicle was disabled on the right
shoulder of I-81 south in Lebanon County, near mile marker 86.5 in East
Hanover Township. It was parked behind a tractor-trailer.
A southbound tractor-trailer driven by Doug Jones, 78, of Mansfield, struck
Flores' vehicle, and then the parked tractor-trailer. Jones' truck
then hit the guide rail on the right shoulder and the trailer broke loose
and continued south, scattering its contents across the road.
Flores was pronounced dead at the scene. Jones was not hurt.
