A crash involving a school bus and tractor-trailer backed up traffic for miles during the busy morning commute.

The bus, big rig, van and a sports utility vehicle collided around 7 a.m. along the eastbound lanes of the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) past the Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. Route 1) in Philadelphia, Pa.

One person suffered minor injuries, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

The crash itself was minor and no kids were on the bus but the damage was done.

Traffic backed up all the way to the Blue Route (I-476) -- causing a 60-minute delay -- in the east bound direction and slowed westbound due to a gaper delay.

The crash also caused delays along the Roosevelt Boulevard southbound approaching I-76.

The river drives, Ridge Pike, Henry Avenue and other roads could be used as alternate routes.

The wreck took about one hour to completely clear.
