According to a representative of Clarion County 9-1-1, the accident, which involved a truck that was hauling hot tar, was reported around 11:07 a.m.
Farmington Township Volunteer Fire Company, Marienville Volunteer Fire Company, Sigel Volunteer Fire Department, Clarion Hospital Ambulance, and Marienville-based State Police were dispatched to the scene.
LifeFlight was also dispatched to the scene.
PennDOT and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) were also notified of the crash due to the nature of the freight.

The roadway has since reopened, according to PennDOT.
