Traffic is stacked up along Route 28 in Harmar after an accident near RIDC Park on Monday, April 16, 2018.

Three accidents this morning continue to snarl traffic along Route 28 and Allegheny River Boulevard.

Just before 8 a.m. at least four vehicles were involved in a crash on southbound Route 28 near RIDC Park and Exit 10. State police are investigating. No serious injuries were reported, police said.

Just after 7:30 a.m., dispatchers say, an accident was reported along Allegheny River Boulevard at Washington Boulevard. That accident was cleared by about 8:30 a.m. but another accident at Sandy Creek Road in Penn Hills and Allegheny River Boulevard was still active as of 8:50 a.m., an Allegheny County 911 dispatcher said.

Dispatchers said there were no immediate reports of injuries, but medics were called to both scenes.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com 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.
