BENSALEM, Pa. (AP) — Traffic accidents involving multiple tractor trailers and cars has completely blocked traffic in the eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in eastern Pennsylvania.
The turnpike said the crashes reported just after 8 a.m. Friday were blocking all eastbound lanes between the Bensalem and Willow Grove exits. Drivers were advised to use alternate routes and expect heavy delays in the area.
Television news helicopter footage showed several tractor-trailers and a number of cars completely blocking the eastbound lanes in what appeared to be a series of accidents that had backed traffic up for miles.
An ambulance was shown at the scene but there was no immediate word about injuries.
