Canning Group Involved In Multiple-Car Accident
Penn State students en route to go canning were involved in a multiple-car accident today on I-80 East headed to Wilkes-Barre. According to Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers, a car carrying three students was involved.
One of the students sustained a minor injury in the form of a cut on her head. Though no serious injuries were reported, the students traveled to the local hospital for examination.
The students were canning for sorority Alpha Phi. According to a witness of the accident, the road where the crash occurred was coated in black ice, and there appeared to be many cars and a tractor trailer involved.
In a trio of emails sent out earlier today, THON encouraged canners to leave tomorrow morning to avoid the forecasted weather. However, they did not forbid canners from leaving tonight, and many braved the roadways.
Canners, be safe this weekend! Stay warm and check the weather along your route #CanningFTK
