CUMRU TWP., Pa. - A crash slowed the Monday morning commute on the West Shore Bypass in Berks County.
The crash, which happened around 8 a.m. on the eastbound side of Route 422, forced officials to close the highway at the Interstate 176 interchange in Cumru Township.
Officials said traffic on Route 422 was stopped due to a high volume of vehicles trying to get onto I-176.
One vehicle didn't stop in time and rear-ended another, causing the crash. A total of three vehicles were involved.
There were heavy delays in both directions.
Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The highway reopened to traffic in both directions just before 10 a.m.
