Crash Slows Interstate 95 to a Near Standstill

Travel times broke the triple digits along Interstate 95 in Philadelphia due to a crash during the Tuesday morning rush.

The drive time from Woodhaven Road to Interstate 676 (Vine Street Expressway) on I-95 southbound, about a 14-mile trip, ballooned to 100-plus minutes before 7 a.m. due to the multi-vehicle wreck near Girard Avenue.

Average speeds dropped into the single digits as traffic slowly got past the scene.

U.S. Route 1 and Route 130 could be used as alternate routes, NBC10 First Alert traffic reporter Jessica Boyington said.

Drive times finally began to normalize again after 8:30 a.m.

No one was hurt in the crash.
