5-Vehicle Crash Closes Route 422 in Montgomery County

A five-vehicle crash stopped traffic on one of Montgomery County’s busiest highways for about two hours during the Thursday morning rush.

The wreck happened around 5:45 a.m. in the ongoing construction zone along Route 422 eastbound near Trooper Road in Upper Merion. A minivan wound up partially on top of a barricade.

It took emergency crews a while to get to the scene since there is no shoulder where it happened. Traffic backed all the way up to Oaks, where drivers were forced off the road.

No injuries were reported, Montgomery County dispatchers said.

Crews got the roadway cleared by 7:45 as traffic slowly began moving again.
