If you're driving around Bucks County this morning, heads up. A massive accident has caused very serious delays on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bensalem, Pa. (that's in Bucks County).
The crash happened at about 6 a.m. Thursday near the Bensalem exit. Multiple sources and outlets (including 6ABC) say that a tractor-trailer hit the concrete barrier on the roadway earlier this morning.
Now the Pennsylvania Turnpike is closed on the Westbound side of the roadway between the exit for Route 1 (that's exit 351) and the exit for Willow Grove (exit 343). Traffic is actually stopped at Exit 40 (that's the exit for I-95).
