Crash Slows Traffic on Busy Stretch of Pennsylvania Turnpike

A crash snarled traffic along the Pennsylvania Turnpike Tuesday morning as crews worked for about an hour to free a person from the wreckage.

A car became wedged under the back of tractor-trailer along the eastbound lanes between the Neshaminey Falls and the Delaware Valley interchanges in Bucks County around 5:40 a.m., Pennsylvania State Police said.

It took crews some time to free the driver of the car as a medical helicopter landed about an hour after the wreck.

Once loaded into the chopper, the driver was rushed to Temple University Hospital with undisclosed injuries. The truck driver wasn't hurt, police said.

Around one lane got by as crews worked at the scene so expect delays.

All lanes reopened around 8:20 a.m., the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission said.
