Pennsylvania Turnpike accidentWith snow falling all over Pennsylvania today, there is no surprise that there will be minor to major accidents in certain parts of the state. Luckily, many parts of PA are being cleared by PennDOT as they actively work to ensure that people can return to work.

Today, a Pennsylvania Turnpike accident blocked all lanes and led to an hours-long detour as it trapped drivers from passing by on the westbound lanes. The crash happened early around 6:30 a.m. near the Reading exit and involved several vehicles. It took hours to clear the road because there was a lot of debris on the road from the accident.

As a result, there was a 45 MPH speed limit implemented so that they could reduce the likelihood of more accidents.
