GLEN ROCK, Pa. (WHTM) -

A 10-vehicle pile-up injured seven people and closed a two-mile section of Interstate 83 in York County for the evening commute.

The northbound lanes were shut down between Exit 8 for Glen Rock and Exit 10 for Loganville around 1:30 p.m. when a tractor-trailer driver failed to notice slowing traffic and rear-ended another vehicle to trigger the chain reaction crash, state police said.

The northbound lanes remained closed until after 8 p.m. when the incident was cleared.

Three other tractor-trailers, five cars, and a truck towing two vehicles were also involved, police said.

Those injured were treated at hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Diesel fuel and hydraulic fluids leaked, but were contained by a hazardous materials crew.

The southbound lanes were also closed, but one lane reopened after 45 minutes and the second reopened after three hours.

PennDOT cameras during the evening rush showed northbound traffic is backed up before Exit 4 for Shrewsbury, and southbound traffic is backed up to Exit 14 for Leader Heights.

The crash is still under investigation.
