BUTLER TWP. – An on-ramp to Interstate 80 was closed for nearly four hours when a tractor-trailer flipped onto its side on Wednesday.

State police at Hazleton said Anthony Shildmeier, 56, of Muncie, Ind., driving a 2005 Volvo tractor, was traveling south on Interstate 81 and entered the on-ramp to Intestate 80 east at about 10 a.m.

Shildmeier failed to negotiate the curve, causing the tractor-trailer to roll over the guide rail, coming to rest on its driver's side, state police said.

State police said Shildmeier had to be extricated from the tractor. He was taken to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township for treatment of minor injuries.

Shildmeier was cited with driving at unsafe speed, state police said.

The on-ramp reopened just after 2 p.m.

HAZLETON – City police said they arrested Onan Mejia-Moreta, 32, of Hazleton, on domestic violence charges on Tuesday.

He was charged with simple assault, terroristic threats and harassment and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $35,000 bail.
