A New Hope man was hurt in multi-vehicle crash in Upper Bucks County.

Pennsylvania State Police said in a Friday statement that two people, including a 57-year-old New Hope man, were hurt in the crash that occurred on the Pennsylvania Turnpike’s Northeast Extension in West Rockhill Township last Monday at 6:59 a.m.

The crash involved three tractor-trailers and a Ford F-550 dump truck driven by the 57-year-old New Hope man. He had a 57-year-old man from Berks County as a passenger, state police said.

Troopers said one of the tractor-trailers stopped to avoid a crash and the dump truck then struck one of the tractor-trailers, causing it to flip. The dump truck was carrying a load of rocks that spilled onto the highway.

The New Hope man and the passenger in the dump truck were both hurt and transported by the Upper Perkiomen Valley Ambulance Association to Grandview Hospital for treatment.

Troopers said they will cite two of the three tractor-trailer drivers for causing the crash.
