The eastbound Pennsylvania Turnpike has reopened in Bucks County following a crash involving several tractor-trailers early Friday morning.

Turnpike officials said the crash on 1-276 in Bensalem was reported shortly after 6 a.m. Friday. 6 ABC reports the accident involved 3 tractor trailers, one of which was carrying a load of steel, and 2 passenger vehicles. 

The road reopened around 1 p.m. according to New Jersey Fast Traffic.

One person needed to be removed from one of the vehicles; there is no word on other injuries.

The impact of the crash on the Jersey barrier dividing the turnpike caused pieces of concrete to land on the westbound side and pushed the barrier into a lane according to NBC Philadelphia. One westbound lane is open but with extensive delays back to the New Jersey Turnpike extension. There are no service areas on that stretch of the turnpike.

Eastbound traffic is being detoured at  #351 (Bensalem) where drivers can take US Route 1 South to  Street Road (Route 132) east for several miles to Route 13 North. This detour will bring motorists to the #358 (Delaware Valley).
