A multi-vehicle crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike resulted in injuries to two people. On Tuesday morning, around 5:45 am, the multi-vehicle accident took place between the Bensalem, Pennsylvania and the Willow Grow, Pennsylvania interchanges, involving a dump truck, a tractor-trailer, and roughly three other vehicles. A hundred gallons of diesel fuel spilled from the tractor-trailer down an embankment, which required a temporary closing of the Bensalem Interchange to ensure a safe clean-up.
Multi-vehicle crashes can begin with one small car accident that multiplies in severity due to congestion on the highway during a busy commute time or if inclement weather lowers visibility and traction. Oftentimes, accidents like this result in catastrophic injuries for drivers and passengers as well as the possibility of fatalities. Large vehicles like tractor-trailers may contribute to the mayhem on the road due to their size alone.
