Police say an estimated 50 to 100 vehicles were involved in a series of crashes on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Bensalem, Bucks County on Friday morning.
The crashes happened around 8:30 a.m. Friday near the Route 1 exit for Bensalem.
The most remarkable scene showed up to dozen vehicles, including a FedEx box truck, piled up behind two tractor trailers.
“My car began spinning and then the Fed Ex truck slid into my car,” said Tracey Woods, who was a passenger in the minivan driven by her husband, Jeff Woods.
