Fire crews and fire police from Punxsutawney closed Route 119 from Route 210 south toward the scene.
Scanner transmissions also indicated the people in the area of the crash were evacuated.
Also responding to the scene were Perry Township firefighters, Indiana County's Hazmat unit and PennDOT, among others.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” During Tuesdayâ€™s Public Safety committee meeting, Punxsutawney Memorial Library Director Coral Ellshoff said she would like to improve the signage and increase the visibility of the entrance at the library.

PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Punxsutawney Little League complex will be just as crowded this weekend as it was last weekend, and for a very similar reason.
This time, though, softball will be the sport highlighted instead of baseball, as 20 teams from across the region will play in four different age groups: Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16.
Punxsy will be represented in three of the age brackets.
