Harold Frey is spending the last few day’s of his stewardship of Frey’s Country Store, along Alburtis’ main street, reducing his inventory and saying goodbye to a community he has loved for 33 years – and seeing that love returned many times over.

Police say multi-vehicle crash along Interstate 78 allegedly caused by pickup truck that fled the scene
Pennsylvania State Police are attempting to locate the driver of a white pickup truck they said fled the scene after allegedly driving erratically and causing a crash involving multiple vehicles in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 78 a few minutes before 6 a.m. July 10.
The crash left a tandem tractor-trailer rig straddled over the concrete safety barrier near the stormwater retention pond area of hospital property, with a Toyota Avalon trapped under the rig’s second trailer unit and rescue workers marveling how both the rig and car drivers escaped without serious injury.
