Pa. Turnpike reopened

Posted: June 17, 2013

HARRISBURG - A five-mile stretch of the westbound Pennsylvania Turnpike near Harrisburg that was shut down since 9:15 a.m. following a multi-vehicle crash has been reopened.

The three-vehicle collision took place in the westbound lanes of a bridge over the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg. It occurred when a car traveled eastbound on the westbound side of the bridge. The car collided with a tractor-trailer, which was then rear-ended by another vehicle, state police said.

Police say one person has been critically injured and two others have been taken to a hospital.

The affected portion of the turnpike was between mile markers 242 and 247.
