Car Flips Over on Walt Whitman Bridge Slowing Friday Trip Toward Jersey Shore

An overturned car caused all eastbound lanes on the Walt Whitman Bridge to temporarily close Friday afternoon, resulting in a massive backup. (Published Friday, Aug. 28, 2015)

A car overturned – completely blocking Friday afternoon traffic – on one of the main bridges used to get to the Jersey Shore.

The wreck closed the eastbound Walt Whitman Bridge over the Delaware River around 4:30 p.m.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time alter, a tow truck could be seen working to clear the scene as a long delay backed up into South Philadelphia. It didn't take crews long to right the car and clear the scene but the delays remained.

The route is popular with people going down the Jersey Shore or home from work.

No word yet on injuries.
