Accidents along Interstate 80 in Mercer County sent people to the hospital and blocked traffic for more than six hours overnight.

The Pennsylvania State Police is investigating a crash involving several vehicles Thursday night that closed the westbound lanes of I-80 between the New Castle interchange and the state line.

At 4:42 am Friday, the westbound lanes of I-80 have opened again. 

Police say there were injuries, but none are life-threatening.

One of the trucks spilled its cargo of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

A second crash on I-80 was reported shortly before 4 am.

State police say a UPS tandem truck jackknifed on eastbound I-80 just past the Sandy Lake/Grove City interchange.

The left lane is blocked but state police say cars and trucks were still able to pass in the right lane.

The driver was not injured.
