Two accidents this morning caused major traffic delays in the area. The first accident involved a vehicle striking a pole and causing downed wires. This accident closed Ridge Pike between Bells Mills and Manor Road. The second accident was on Bells Mill Road and closed that street between Ridge and Germantown Pikes. We have not seen any reports of injuries.
This resulted in backed up traffic in all directions. See how Twitter reacted below:
Ridge Pike could be closed for a while. A car hit a pole and now they have downed wires. They’re waiting for PECO. Stick to Germantown Pike instead. @6abc pic.twitter.com/GRdo62KViu
