View Comments ()



    Police blocked off a busy off-ramp this morning due to a police investigation of a sport utility vehicle off the side of the road.

    Pennsylvania State Police blocked the Girard Avenue Exit (Exit 342) from the eastbound Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) around 7 a.m. Thursday.

    Police didn’t release details about the incident.

    As SkyForce10 hovered overhead you could see troopers taking something out of the disabled vehicle, which has handicapped plates, as firefighters and medics waited near the scene.

    Traffic slowed along the Schuylkill Expressway for hours as motorists were forced to use other exits during the investigation.
