Truck Catches Fire
A Reading man heading westbound on the Pennsylvania Turnpike through Fulton County on Monday, September 20, escaped injury after his truck caught fire. Twenty-seven-year-old Michael Velez was just north of Jerry Road when he pulled onto the berm because his 1982 Ford truck was malfunctioning, state police elaborated. Fire was observed coming from the right side of the engine compartment, and Velez exited the truck without injury. The truck became fully engulfed in flames, which were extinguished by the Hustontown Volunteer Fire Co.
