Kinston Trucker Killed In Pennsylvania Crash

State police in Pennsylvania say a Kinston man was killed in an early morning accident on Interstate 81.

The victim has been identified as 40-year-old Albert Hill, Jr.

Troopers say the accident happened around 1:00 a.m. Friday morning in Luzerne County, that's south of Wilkes-Barre.

They say Hill's tractor trailer was northbound when it drove off the left side of the road and struck a rock embankment. Hill was thrown from the cab and died at the scene.

State police say their investigation into why Hill's rig went off the interstate is continuing.

    This is very sad. I went to high school with Al's brother Brad and his wife Amy. My heart goes out to the family.

    A good friend to me. I never called him that he didn't come to my rescue. I could always talk to him about anything. I'm praying for the family and for him. If you need anything let me know. RIP Big Al miss you!!!

    Such a wonderful person who made the best of everything. He made you laugh even at the bad things that were happening in your life as well as the good. Kinston lost another good person. We will miss you for sure. Praying for the family and all that knew him.
