Pittsburgh’s Route 28 reopen after multi-car crash

PITTSBURGH (AP) — One of Pittsburgh’s busiest highways has reopened after a multiple vehicle crash, but police were warning motorists that rush hour traffic delays could still result.

City police were on the scene of the crash on Route 28 near the former H.J. Heinz Co. plant. That stretch of the road typically congests during rush hour because of ongoing work to widen the highway, the main artery connecting the city with its northeast suburbs.

It was not immediately clear whether anybody was injured in the crash, which emergency dispatchers say involved as many as five vehicles.

The wreck happened about 1 p.m. Monday. The road reopened after the last vehicle was towed from the scene about an hour later.
