A driver was killed and three constriction workers injured in an early-morning accident on the Pa. Turnpike in Bucks County, according to multiple reports.
The driver of the car, who has yet to be identified, crashed into a truck carrying the construction workers just before 6:00 a.m. on the eastbound lanes near the Bensalem interchange. The construction workers, contractors hired by the Turnpike to work on the I-95 interchange it's developing, were apparently using a vehicle to pick up cones to reopen a closed lane when they were struck by the second vehicle.
The driver of the car was pronounced dead shortly after the accident. According to the Associated Press, the most seriously injured worker was flown to Temple University Hospital. One was transported by ambulance to Aria Torresdale Hospital, while the third worker's injures weren't serious and treated at the scene.
The eastbound lanes of the Pa. Turnpike between the Bensalem and Delaware Valley exits, closed for most of Saturday morning following the accident, have been re-opened.
