A truck accident on Route 22 eastbound by the Northern Pike Friday afternoon has been cleared but was still causing congestion, said Juliann Sheldon, safety press officer for PennDOT.

Sheldon said the agency is suggesting that people take alternate routes if possible.

The truck overturned, but Sheldon said the cause has yet to be determined.

Monroeville Police Chief Doug Cole said no one was injured. The truck was the only vehicle involved. The accident occurred at 1:27 p.m. Friday and took more than two hours to clear, he said.

Diesel fuel leaked on the roadway before the Monroeville Fire Department cleaned it up, Cole said.
