An apparent crash on Penn Valley Road underneath the Route 13 bridge caused some issues for motorists Thursday morning. 

A tractor trailer for Swift Transportation was stopped in the on-coming lane with small amounts of debris nearby.

Police had the area cordoned off as of 6 a.m., forcing any commuters hoping to use the southbound on-ramp to take a different way.

Motorists heading East on Penn Valley Road to Route 13 should plan to use the Mill Creek or Tyburn Road entrances until the scene is cleared.

It’s unclear whether anyone was injured or if another vehicle was involved.
