Lehigh County Communications dispatchers say police were on the scene of an accident on Hamilton Boulevard in Lower Macungie Township just after 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

In addition to the accident, heavy volume was reported in the area due to a large number of people trying to get to Dorney Park for Saturday morning's Color Me Rad 5K run, a portion of which was scheduled to begin at 7:40 a.m., according to the website for the event.

Police said there were injuries reported in the accident but they could not provide additional details.


State Police told 69 News that the accident was cleared shortly after 7:30 a.m., but there was still heavy traffic in the area at the time.
