Crash halts northbound I-476 traffic for hours

February 20, 2014
Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Authorities say a multi-vehicle crash involving a box truck closed all lanes of I-476 northbound near Philadelphia.

The pileup shortly after 5 a.m. on the highway known locally as the Blue Route occurred near the off-ramp to Route 3 in Delaware County.

Television news helicopter footage showed a box truck on its side atop a car with other vehicles apparently involved as well.

Police said at least one person was taken to a hospital. Traffic was able to begin moving past the scene of the accident after several hours.

Accidents were reported on other roadways, and the Pennsylvania transportation department was warning motorists to use caution due to icy conditions.
