DOWNINGTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – A portion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike has reopened after a crash involving a tractor-trailer left a soapy mess on the highway, Tuesday morning. The crash happened on the eastbound lanes of the turnpike, between Downingtown and Valley Forge.

Officials say the tractor-trailer and a car collided, just after 3 a.m. The tractor-trailer split in half and spilled jugs of dish soap across the road.

The eastbound lanes were closed for several hours but have since reopened.

Two people were taken to the hospital. There is no word on the extent of their injuries.
