The crash, involving several vehicles, happened just before 7 a.m. near the Montgomery Avenue exit and blocking 2 lanes.
Emergency workers arrived on the scene and the backup has quickly stretched from the accident scene at Montgomery Avenue back to the Blue Route. The delay ended up adding about an hour to some commuters' drive times.
The eastbound accident was cleared by 8 a.m., but then an accident happened on the Schuylkill Expressway's westbound lanes near Montgomery Avenue.
There's no word about the cause of either crash or the conditions of any of the drivers.
