Crash halts Interstate 95 traffic in Northeast Philadelphia

July 29, 2018

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Traffic is moving again after a crash had brought vehicles along southbound Interstate 95 in Northeast Philadelphia to a standstill.

Pennsylvania State Police remain on the scene Sunday morning between Pennsylvania Route 63 West-Woodhaven Road and Academy Road-Linden Avenue.

Traffic was backed up for one mile before police opened one lane just before 8 a.m. Details of the crash that involved at least two vehicles were not immediately available.

Steve Gilson of Levittown Pennsylvania and his son were caught in the backup. Gilson is a coach with the Lower Bucks prospects baseball team playing in a tournament in Boothwyn Pennsylvania, about 35 miles (56.32 kilometers) away. Gilson said “it’s frustrating” but he just hoped to be at the ball field in time for his 9 a.m. game.
