Camper trailer overturns on I-81

STRASBURG -- A Florida man overturned his 12-foot Scamp camper trailer on Interstate 81 on Sunday, authorities said.

According to state Trooper E.S. Wadsworth, John Ehrman, 57, of Port St. Joe, ran off the right shoulder of the interstate while traveling south near Strasburg.

Ehrman overcorrected, which caused the trailer to disconnect from his 2005 Honda Element, Ehrman said. Both the Honda and the trailer ended up in the median, but the Honda stayed upright, he said.

No one was injured and no other cars were involved, Ehrman said. There was one passenger in the car.

Traffic was blocked briefly for about a mile while emergency crews cleared the scene.
