Day After Christmas Crashes

Two separate crashes snarled traffic along area roadways in two counties the morning after Christmas.

A pickup truck overturned and two cars were pushed onto the sidewalk in the outer lanes of the southbound Roosevelt Boulevard (U.S. Route 1) near Rhawn Street in the Rhawnhurst section of Northeast Philadelphia around 6:30 a.m.

Crew could be seen responding to the scene of the mangled vehicles. The crash blocked traffic in the outer lane of the Boulevard and Rhawn Street.

Medics rushed a man to a local hospital with non-life-threatening, according to police.

Around the same time, a multi-vehicle crash involving a tractor trailer closed Bristol Pike (Route 13) in both directions between Levittown Parkway and Haines Road in Levittown, Bucks County, Pa.

The Costco big rig appeared to straddle the guard rail, blocking lanes on both side of Route 13. No one was hurt.
