Liberty Bridge Reopens To Traffic After 3-Vehicle Crash With Injuries

4 People, Including Child, Injured In Accident

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Four people were injured in a muti-vehicle crash that shut down the Liberty Bridge this afternoon.

The three-vehicle crash happened around 2:40 p.m., closer to the downtown side of the bridge.

The span was closed down completely to traffic for about three hours, but opened back up at 6 p.m. Still, traffic back-ups were significant, and officials were asking drivers to use alternative routes and stay patient.

Three adults and a 4-day-old infant were injured in the crash. All of them were rushed to the hospital, but none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.

The baby was taken to Children’s Hospital and the parents are being treated at UPMC Mercy Hospital.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, but city Public Safety officials say the man driving a white SUV may have been in the wrong lane of traffic.

He was taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital for treatment, and was last reported in good condition.

Another man involved in the crash refused medical treatment at the scene.
