Danville woman not sick from monkey exposure

 A 45-year-old Danville resident said she had the “worst day of her life”

she encountered lab monkeys while trying to help at the scene of a crash in Montour County on Friday.

Michele Fallon said she is taking precautions for her health after saying one of the monkeys

she later discovered was being sent to a lab, hissed at her on Route 54 near Interstate 80 Friday afternoon.

State police said a trailer collided with a dump truck causing crates of monkeys to be dumped along the roadway. 

Three of the reported 100 animals escaped, according to troopers. All three were eventually captured and euthanized, according to authorities.

Fallon said the day began when she was coming back to Danville from Bloomsburg and was traveling on I-80 west toward the Danville exit.

Fallon said another person began to walk up and said there were cats inside and that one had run away.
