A pair of multiple-vehicle crashes on the Parkway West partially blocked the highway and caused backups along the inbound lanes Friday afternoon, Pennsylvania State Police said.
The first crash occurred about 2:45 p.m. on the inbound side of the parkway near Carnegie and the ramps to the West Busway, police said, blocking the two left lanes. PennDOT officials said another crash occurred in the outbound lanes a short time later.
PennDOT officials said the accidents were cleared and all lanes reopened by 4:15 p.m., though there would likely be residual delays heading into the evening rush hour. Allegheny County 911 dispatchers said two patients were transported to local hospitals, though no information was available about the severity of their injuries.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
