A four-vehicle crash closed two northbound lanes of Route 128 in Waltham this morning, causing significant backups during the early commute.
The crash occurred just before 7 a.m. a few miles north of the Massachusetts Turnpike and involved a tractor trailer, delivery truck, and two other vehicles, said Trooper Thomas Murphy, a spokesman for the State Police.
The two lanes of traffic were getting by, but the accident "did have an impact on the morning commute with the flow of traffic," Murphy said. There is also a backup of traffic in the southbound lanes because of the "curiosity factor," he said.
Some people involved in the crash suffered minor injuries, but police did not know how badly they were hurt.
