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.
