A pedestrian was killed Friday morning on Interstate 83 after being struck by two tractor trailers, according to York County Coroner Pam Gay. 

A man was walking near mile marker 22 about 5:50 a.m. when he was struck by a tractor trailer, Gay said in a news release. He was then hit by a second truck.

The deceased man had not been identified as of 11:30 a.m. Friday, pending the notification of his family, Gay said. 

State police are investigating the incident, which closed a northbound section of I-83 for about three hours Friday morning. 

Northbound lanes on I-83 between Exit 22 (North George Street) and Exit 24 (Emigsville) reopened about 10 a.m., according to 511PA, after being closed for about three hours.

PennDOT traffic cameras showed lines of vehicles stalled on I-83 north for about a mile. Some drivers reversed on I-83 to avoid the crash scene. 

Traffic was diverted at Exit 22.
