The eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike has reopened, but a westbound stretch between Carlisle and Breezewood remained closed after a three-vehicle crash Monday morning.

The crash occurred in the eastbound lanes around 4 a.m. and closed the turnpike in both directions between those exits.

Turnpike officials say the crash involved two tractor-trailers and a minivan. One of the trucks overturned.

Four people were taken to a hospital. Their conditions were not released.

All lanes finally reopened shortly after 11 a.m., said the turnpike commission.
