State police say a man died following a three-vehicle crash in Jefferson County. Troopers say the crash happened in the westbound lanes of I-80 around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday when a car was crushed between two tractor-trailers. According to a release, one of the tractor-trailers was traveling at a slow speed due to traffic passing through a construction zone. A passenger car, driven by 52-year-old Scott Smith, of Punxsutawney, and second tractor-trailer were approaching the zone when Smith was unable to slow down in enough time. Troopers say Smith's car struck the rear of the first tractor-trailer and spun out before being hit by the second tractor-trailer. The first tractor trailer jackknifed and crushed the car between the two tractor-trailers. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene by the Jefferson County coroner.
