FULTON COUNTY, Pa. - Pennsylvania State Police say a Michigan couple was flown to the hospital Tuesday afternoon after a serious accident on Interstate-70. 

It happened around 11:30 a.m. on I-70 westbound by mile marker 166 in Bethel Twp. in Fulton County. 

State Police say John Phillip Pincumbre, 69, and his wife Linda, 68, both of Schoolcraft, MI, were driving down the interstate in a construction zone when their vehicle veered over into a closed lane and struck a parked Penn DOT dump truck. 

Troopers say traffic was backed up for nearly three hours as crews worked to free the couple from their vehicle.
