Trooper-Involved Crash Shuts Down Northbound Blue Route

Updated:
BROOMALL, Pa. -

All lanes on the northbound Blue Route were shut down Thursday morning, but they have been reopened. This happened after a Pennsylvania State Police trooper was involved in a crash. Traffic is still delayed.

The crash on Interstate 476 was reported shortly after 5:30 a.m. at Broomall/Upper Darby exit 9 for West Chester Pike (Pa. Route 3).

CHECK: Latest Traffic Conditions

SkyFOX flew over the scene and showed what appears to be two cars and a box truck that overturned. The trooper's cruiser, with rear-end damage, was in the mix. By 8:00 a.m., Karen Hepp reported on scene that the crash was cleared up.

At least one person was seen being extricated and wheeled away from the crash scene on a stretcher. We're told one person is hospitalized, but the injury was not serious.

Traffic is still delayed, three hours worth of a backup, says Kacie McDonnell, but again, the lanes are all open. Routes 320 or 252 are going to be your alternate routes.

We're getting a lot of reports of black ice on the roads this morning, so take your time getting to your destination. Police also think that the ice could have been a cause in the accident on 476.
