A traffic camera near the Highland Park Bridge shows traffic backed up Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, on Route 28. A crash near the bridge stopped inbound traffic during the morning commute.

Traffic has resumed on Route 28 southbound, after a crash caused a standstill Friday morning.

PennDot confirmed on Twitter that the incident had cleared. There were still residual delays.

All lanes of traffic on Route 28 southbound were stopped around 8 a.m., after a crash involving five vehicles, state police said.

The crash occured near the Fox Chapel exit. Inbound traffic was at a standstill from the Highland Park Bridge back to Exit 10 at the RIDC Park. The southbound lanes were completely blocked by emergency vehicles. Police officers were at the Harmar exit advising drivers to slow down as they approached the backup.

Several vehicles were being towed from the scene. People caught in the traffic were out of the vehicles and standing on the roadway while they waited.

No injuries were reported.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
