Overturned Big Rig Blocks Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bucks County

A tractor-trailer overturned in a five-vehicle collision that left the westbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bucks County closed for more than an hour Friday afternoon.

The wreck happened near the Route 1 Exit (Interchange 351) in Bensalem around 2:15 p.m.

One person suffered non-deadly injuries, said Pennsylvania State Police.

A minivan and at least one car appeared to also be involved along with two other vehicles.

Crews worked to upright the big rig and clean up a small amount of oil that spilled onto the roadway, said police.

Traffic began flowing again by 3:45 p.m. as the uprighted truck sat on the shoulder of the roadway.
