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.
