4 taken to hospital after Parkway East crash

October 2, 2018

A four-vehicle crash involving a dump truck blocked traffic on I-376 eastbound on Tuesday.

The crash closed two lanes at the Forbes Avenue/Oakland exit (Exit 72A), state police at the Moon barracks said.

The crash was reported at 9:52 a.m., according to an Allegheny County 911 dispatcher.

State police said four people were taken to hospitals for treatment. Two were taken to UPMC Mercy, and two were taken to UPMC Presbyterian. State police couldn’t say what their conditions were.

State police said crews were working to upright the dump truck, which tipped onto its side and spilled cement mix and sand onto the roadway.

PennDOT spokeswoman Yasmeen Manyisha advised motorists to consider alternate routes, as traffic could be stopped to allow for cleanup.
