MILFORD TWP., Pa. - A four-vehicle crash caused major traffic issues on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bucks County on Monday morning.
The wreck was reported around 7:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes of the Northeast Extension, between Quakertown and Lansdale, according to emergency dispatchers.
The crash happened after two vehicles slowed down and one was hit by a box truck, state police said. The box truck caused one of the vehicles to hit the other and flip onto a fourth vehicle, according to state police. The box truck also ended up on its side from the crash.
Four people had minor injuries and were taken to the hospital, police said.
The southbound lanes were closed, and traffic was backed up almost to the Quakertown exit. A detour was in place until about 10:30 a.m., though delays remained as traffic began to move again.
Delays had been reported on the northbound side as well.
Police did not say what led to the crash.
