A motorist crashed into and knocked over a pole on the outbound Parkway East between the Penn Hills and Monroeville exits, clogging the Thursday afternoon commute.

Motorists should expect “significant delays,” said Steve Cowan, a PennDOT spokesman.

He said traffic was backed up several miles but all lanes were reopen about 4:30 p.m. The accident occurred about 3 p.m.

“My suggestion to motorists would be, if you have an opportunity to take a different route, you may want to consider it at this point,” he said.

Emergency responders were tending to the driver, but Cowan was unsure if anyone was injured.
