A traffic nightmare snarled traffic near Philadelphia International Airport for more than an hour this morning and once that crash was cleared another was reported along another busy highway.

A little before 6 a.m., a vehicle overturned on the Schuylkill Expressway (I-76) eastbound before Gulph Mills causing all lanes to shutdown. Traffic quickly backed up towards King of Prussia.

Crews said that a person was trapped in the overturned vehicle. No word on the severity of the injury.

Around 6:30 a.m. one lane began to slowly move past the scene. By 7 a.m. everything was flowing smoothly.

The rain-drenched traffic nightmare started earlier in the morning.

Two cars, including one that overturned, crashed along I-95 northbound approaching Route 420 (Exit 9) in Delaware County around 4 a.m. As crews worked to clear the scene there were intermittent closures as traffic back up to Ridley Park (Exit 8).

By 5:30 a.m. the overturned vehicle was cleared but the backup remained as cars were forced from four lanes down to just two or even one at times. Traffic began moving again around 5:45 a.m.

No word on possible injuries and exactly what caused the cars to collide.

These wrecks came as a slew of spin out crashes happened around the region overnight as heavy rain pounded the area.
