First responders had to halt traffic on the eastbound section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Cranberry so that helicopters could fly patients from a traffic accident to hospitals.

Three people suffered injuries around 11:30 a.m., when a vehicle went off the eastbound lanes of the turnpike at the Cranberry exit and overturned, according to emergency dispatchers and state police. Two people were being flown from the accident scene. Emergency responders stopped eastbound traffic to allow helicopters to land on the highway.
