By Steve Beck

FRAZER, Pa. (CBS) — A tractor-trailer crash shut down a heavily-traveled road in Chester County Tuesday morning for nearly three hours.

The accident happened shortly after 5:30 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Route 202 between Route 30 and Route 401. The crash happened right before the Frazer exit.

Chopper 3 HD was over the scene shortly after the crash that involved a single tractor-trailer. Eyewitness News traffic reporter Bob Kelly says the trailer crashed in a construction zone. The tractor-trailer jumped a concrete barrier.

The tractor leaked fuel as a result of the crash, but there were no reports of any fires.

Traffic in the northbound lanes of Route 202 was closed until about 8:30 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation.
