A one-vehicle crash on Route 88 near Bethel Park closed a section of the highway in both directions for several hours earlier this afternoon.
The crash occurred just after 3 p.m. near the Milford Drive intersection on Route 88, just north of Bethel Park, Bethel Park police said. The operator of the vehicle in question was taken to St. Clair Hospital with non-serious injuries and later released.
A utility pole fell across the roadway, making the road impassable, police said. While a team of utility workers from Duquesne Light are still currently at the scene, the highway has opened back up to traffic.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation, according to police.
