    The Pennsylvania Turnpike reopened after a multi-vehicle crash involving a tractor-trailer hauling steel coils Tuesday afternoon.

    The wreck left the big rig overturned at milepost 351.3, near the Bensalem Interchange around 12:30 p.m., closing the westbound lanes.

    No injuries were reported.

    The scene took hours to clean-up as drivers were forced off the roadway at Bensalem and detoured via U.S. Route 1, Route 132 and Route 611 to the Willow Grove Interchange, Exit 343. Shortly before 4 p.m., officials announced the scene had cleared and the westbound lanes reopened.
