56-year-old George Richter was injured after the tractor trailer hit the PennDOT dump truck, skidded and slid sideways and hit a guide rail before it went over the 30 foot embankment.
The crash happened between the Bellwood and Tipton exits just after 4:00 am Friday.
State Police said Richter suffered moderate injuries and will be cited. The driver of the state truck, 53-year-old Robert Monahan, was not injured.
