YORK, Pa. - One person is dead, two others injured after a fiery chain reaction crash in Pennsylvania sparked by a mattress.

State police say it happened Thursday afternoon on Interstate 83 in York County.

Two service trucks from a petroleum company slowed down because of the mattress. A tractor-trailer slammed into the second truck from behind, sending it smashing into the first service truck.

Police say the accident killed the second service truck's driver.

Police say the driver of the vehicle that lost the mattress stopped and is cooperating with investigators.
