Crash snarls morning commute on West Shore Bypass

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.
