Two major accidents — one resulting in the death of a driver — occurred Tuesday afternoon along a 12-mile stretch of Interstate 80 between Northumberland and Montour counties.

At 1:43 p.m., a tractor-trailer reportedly hydroplaned out of control and jackknifed in front of a number of other vehicles between Exits 215 (PA 254) and 212B (Interstate 180 West-Williamsport), in Turbot Township, officials said. The crash caused an eight-vehicle pileup, involving several tractor-trailers, and closed the westbound lanes for several hours.
