    A serious car crash backed up traffic on the eastbound lanes of the Schuylkill Expressway in East Falls on Friday night.

    A car overturned on the ramp from I-76 eastbound to the northbound Roosevelt Boulevard around 7:15 p.m.

    Emergency crews were forced the use the jaws of life to remove the driver from the vehicle, officials said.

    The crash backed up traffic for at least a mile as first responders worked at the scene. The highway was reopened about an hour later.

    The condition of the driver was not immediately available.
