PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Outbound traffic on the Liberty Bridge came to a halt due to an accident early Wednesday morning.

The police’s collision investigation unit said they found the driver of the trailer was changing from the left lane to the right and didn’t catch the vehicle in his blind spot.

The crash happened just before 6 a.m. this morning, and inbound traffic was slow as the bridge was down to one lane.

First responders removed the driver from the vehicle, and he was taken to Mercy Hospital for minor injuries.

Officials say the driver of the tractor trailer is facing possible charges of careless driving or unsafe lane change.

The outbound lanes opened around 7:30 this morning.
