Eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike closed after multi-vehicle crash
The eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike are closed in Bensalem Friday morning due to an accident involving three tractor trailers and two passenger vehicles.
The accident happened after 6 a.m. just past the Route 1 exit, 6ABC Action News reports.
All eastbound traffic is being diverted to Route 1. The report indicates the eastbound lanes are expected to be closed for at least three hours.
One of the tractor trailers involved in the crash struck the Jersey barrier dividing the eastbound and westbound lanes, sending chunks of concrete into the westbound lanes and causing traffic delays on that side of the highway.
