SEPTA Crash Backs Up Schuylkill

A minor accident between a SEPTA bus and a dump truck is backing up traffic on the Eastbound side of the Schuylkill Expressway.

The bus and truck are on the shoulder of the road near the Montgomery Avenue exit.

The road is not shut, but traffic is crawling along for about three miles.

Four people on the bus suffered what appear to be minor injuries, according to police.

Accident investigators say the bus, which is a Route 9 bus, hit the back of the dump truck

From SkyForce10, you could both windshields on the bus, smashed in and broken.

The accident happened just before 3 p.m.

Traffic was still backed up at 3:30 because the bus has to be towed off the highway.

The Route 9 bus goes from 4th and Walnut in Old City, Philadelphia out to the Andorra section of the city, which is in the Northwest.

Check back for updates on the traffic.
