Carlisle, Penn.—At least six vehicles were damaged Saturday morning at the Fall Carlisle Collector Car Swap Meet when a truck and trailer lost control and slid down an incline.
Despite large crowds at the show, witnesses say that no one was injured in the incident.
The accident happened at around 9:30 a.m. Saturday in the Car Corral area.
According to witnesses, a truck pulling a trailer was driving down a relatively steep incline when the truck apparently lost traction and began to slide down the path.
As it slid down the hill, the truck struck several vehicles, and pushed several other cars into each other, including a 1963, Buick Le Sabre, a 1938 Chevy street rod, a 1996 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, and a Mazda RX7 that were all parked in the Car Corral. A late-model Chevy truck with a bed mounted camper and a Dodge van parked in an adjacent swap meet space were also damaged.
Organizers for the 34th Annual event quickly secured the area and began working with the owners of the cars and the driver of the truck and trailer to ensure that the situation was properly handled.
Car enthusiasts from around the world attend the event every year to buy, sell and trade parts, accessories, vehicles and “automobilia.”?
