A 32-year-old woman from New York City was killed in a car accident on a Pennslyvania highway. The accident happened on Wednesday, one of the busiest travel days of the year. The driver of the car, also from New York City was injured in the crash. His condition is unknown.

A westbound car collided with an eastbound tractor-trailer about 9:30 a.m. after the car crossed a grassy median near the New Jersey border, police said. The truck, which carried bags of cement, jackknifed on its passenger side across both eastbound lanes, closing them for six hours.

The driver of the truck was not hurt in the crash. A second car was involved in the accident. No one in that car was injured. The accident shut down eastbound Interstate 78 for a good part of the day. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The police are still investigating the accident.
