Pa. Turnpike reopens in Harrisburg after crash
A five-mile stretch of the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Harrisburg has been reopened following a crash involving a wrong-way driver.
Officials closed all westbound lanes between mile markers 242 and 247 around 9:15 a.m. Sunday after a three-vehicle collision. All lanes were reopened about five hours later.
State police told PennLive.com that the accident occurred when a car traveled eastbound on the westbound side of a bridge over the Susquehanna River.
The car collided with a tractor-trailer, which was then hit by another vehicle.
Police say one person was critically injured and two other have been taken to a hospital.
