BREAKING: Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Shut Down Following Frightening Accident
It’s gridlock in Bucks County this afternoon.
The Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike has been shut down in both directions due to a serious accident involving a tractor-trailer.
94.5 PST’s traffic is reporting that the accident happened around 3:30 pm near mile marker 43.5 (that’s between Lansdale and Quakertown).
Overhead images from local TV stations appear to show a jackknifed tractor-trailer across the median of the road. It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries in the crash. Here's a video from CBS3's chopper over the scene earlier this afternoon:
Officials are expected to be at the scene of the accident for a while as the cleanup begins.
This is a developing story. We'll have more information when it's made available.
