SR222 Closure

    On Monday, October 22nd, the Township of Spring Police Department responded to a one-vehicle accident on the southbound on-ramp to SR222 from Mohns Hill Road.  A truck hauling a flat-bed trailer attempted to negotiate the turn onto the ramp but the flat-bed trailer, which was loaded with a well drilling rig, struck the guard rail and rolled down the embankment.  The flat-bed trailer and well drilling rig came to a rest on its side partially down the embankment.  Due to the possibility that the equipment could further slide or fall onto the highway, the southbound lanes of SR222 were closed until Bressler Towing was able to secure and remove the equipment.  Traffic was detoured onto Old Lancaster Pike.  The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the police department.
