Pa. Turnpike collisionsSeveral multi-vehicles crashes, involving as many as 100 cars and dozens of tractor-trailers stretched over several miles of icy highway, shut down the eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike this morning.

One crash area involved approximately 75 cars and several tractor-trailers.  The incident began about 8 a.m. in the eastbound lanes between Willow Grove and the Route 1 exits in Bensalem, Pa.

Another crash happened closer to the Route 1 exit.  That accident area involved approximately 30 cars and included a jackknifed tractor-trailer.

Chopper 3 was over the scene where it appeared at least four cars were stuck under the jackknifed tractor-trailer.

There were reports of at least 16 injuries, and at least one car was overturned. Doylestown Hospital confirmed it was treating one victim in stable condition as of 11 a.m. Numerous hospitals in the area are on standby in case more victims require treatment.
