Township police to join forces with county for vehicle crashes investigations

The Salisbury Township Police Department has its share of vehicle crashes to investigate, especially in the portion of Interstate 78 that traverses Summit Lawn on South Mountain and where the busy interstate crosses Lehigh Street and Cedar Crest Boulevard in the township.

Crashes also occur in the casino corridor, which includes East Susquehanna Street, Emmaus Avenue and Seidersville Road.

With an agreement approved by a 4-0 vote, with one commissioner absent at the July 11 meeting, the Salisbury police force will be able to utilize a new resource for crash investigations.
