    A crash on I-76, the Schuylkill expressway, causes heavy traffic delays during the morning commute. (Published Monday, Dec. 5, 2016)

    Two school buses collided after one school bus stopped after two other vehicles crashed along the Schuylkill Expressway in Philadelphia Monday morning. The wrecks left massive delays.

    The vehicles – one turned the wrong direction – collided in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 76 near the South Street Exit shortly before 8 a.m. A large school bus managed to stop short of the wreck but a second smaller bus couldn't stop in time and struck the larger bus, said Pennsylvania State Police.

    The wreck left at least four people -- including both bus drivers -- hurt, said firefighters and police.

    No children were on board either bus, said police.

    After 30 minutes, only one lane could squeeze by the crash as delays on the busy highway exceeded one hour, said NBC10 First Alert Traffic reporter Jessica Boyington.

    Crews got the scene cleared after a couple hours.
