Harrisburg, PA — A chain reaction crash involving a Make-A-Wish truck convoy has injured five people in Adams County. The automobile accident occurred just before 1:20 p.m., in the northbound lanes of Route 15 in Tyrone Township, reported WPMT Fox 43.

According to officials, a Snyder’s of Hanover snack truck slammed into a box truck that was traveling in front of the Snyder’s truck, sparking the chain reaction crash with two other 18-wheeler Rutter’s trucks.

The impact of the collision threw three people riding in the Snyder’s truck out of the windshield, before two of the victims were run over by the same truck.

Emergency responders were traveling behind the two trucks and watched the crash unfold. The EMS technicians immediately began administering aide to the victims of the wreck.

One victim, identified as Christina Hess, 35, suffered head and hand injuries in the crash. Hess was released from the hospital Saturday night.

Two others, Tammy Freeman and Catherine Wagaman, both 33, sustained serious injuries.

Two unidentified 14-year-olds also sustained serious injuries in the accident.

Investigations are underway.
