Some shoppers trying to find deals at a Hempfield plaza may have been delayed after an accident caused traffic to back up on Route 30.

Grapeville fire Chief Dan Nescot said shortly after Target opened its doors at 8 p.m. Thursday, the department responded to a two-vehicle accident in the turning lane toward the shopping complex.

No injuries were reported, but one car had to be towed and multiple lanes shut down in the busy corridor, including the entrance to Hempfield Square, which is home to Giant Eagle, Lowes, Petsmart and Target stores.

The main intersection at Hempfield Boulevard that serves as an entrance to the plaza was blocked, Nescot said.

The eastbound side of Route 30 was also limited to one lane while emergency crews cleared the scene, Nescot said.

Along with Grapeville, fire companies from North Hempfield, High Park and Fort Allen responded to help direct traffic, which was necessary for about an hour, he said.
