The highway was closed in both directions between Old Cabin Hollow Road and Franklin Church Road, according to a 911 supervisor, who noted it's possible crews at the scene could expand or change the closure area.

The crash was reported with entrapment, according to 911.

A 911 supervisor said the contents of the trailer reportedly spilled all over the highway.

At 4 p.m. Thursday, Northern York County Regional Police said the northbound lanes would be closed until at least 8 p.m., and that southbound lanes would be affected through the evening rush hour.
