A male motorcyclist was killed today in an accident on U.S. Route 6 in Wysox Township, just east of the Sears store, state police said.

His motorcycle collided with a tractor trailer at approximately 10:30 a.m. at the intersection with Pipher Lane, authorities said.

Light traffic is being detoured onto local streets, and emergency responders anticipate reopening Route 6 at the crash scene around mid-afternoon, according to the state Department of Transportation.
