Allegheny River Boulevard reopened to traffic around 8 a.m. Tuesday following a crash that caused it to be closed in both directions between Nadine Road and Washington Boulevard, an Allegheny County 911 dispatcher confirmed Tuesday morning.
The single-vehicle crash was reported around 5:30 a.m. A utility pole and wires were down.
First responders, including police and paramedics, had to wait for a Duquesne Light crew to arrive, the dispatcher said.
One person was hurt, the Trib’s news partner, WPXI-TV, reported.
