CAMDEN, Del.- Delaware State Police say a crash involving a tractor-trailer and multiple vehicles led to the closure of South DuPont Highway in Camden in both directions for several hours Wednesday.

The accident occurred around 9:44 a.m. on northbound South DuPont Highway (US 13) near Thomas Harmon Drive, which is the Camden Walmart entrance. It is unknown what the extent of any injuries are at this time.

Photos sent in by WBOC viewers showed the tractor-trailer in flames following the crash. 

The crash resulted in the closure of the north- and southbound lanes of US 13 for several hours while the accident scene was investigated and cleared. Shortly before 4 p.m., the Delaware Department of Transportation announced that all US 13 northbound lanes were again open to traffic. The US 13 southbound left lane was also again opened to traffic. The right lane will remain closed along with the side streets and left turns until midnight for traffic signal reconstruction, DelDOT said.

Further details will be released upon the conclusion of the investigation.
