Emergency personnel arrived on scene to find a Peterbilt truck tractor and dump trailer off the side of the Conowingo Dam. The driver of the Peterbilt truck tractor was pronounced deceased at the scene by Emergency Services paramedics. The identity of the driver is being withheld at this time pending notification to next of kin.
In the early stages of this investigation it appears the truck and trailer combination vehicle had been traveling southbound on Conowingo Road and failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway. The vehicle struck the concrete barrier and guardrail on the northbound side, overturned and fell to the bottom of the dam.
