2 injured in tractor-trailer crash on Ben Franklin Bridge

CENTER CITY (WPVI) -- Two people suffered injuries when a tractor-trailer crashed and overturned on the Ben Franklin Bridge.

The big rig overturned in the westbound lanes around 5:00 a.m. Friday at the base of the bridge on the Philadelphia side.

The crash caused inbound traffic to back up all the way across the bridge to Camden at the height of the morning rush hour.

Two people were taken to area hospitals for what appear to be non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic was restricted for more than four hours as crews worked to right the truck and clear the scene.

No word what caused the truck to overturn.
