Car Flips Over Embankment Along Philly's Kelly Drive

A car crashed over an embankment running along Philadelphia’s Kelly Drive and nearly into the Schuylkill River during the Wednesday morning commute.

The crash occurred on the river drive near Reservoir Drive around 8:30 a.m.

No word yet on injuries.

Police blocked a lane of traffic as they waited for a tow truck to remove the crashed car.

Expect traffic troubles in the area despite traffic getting by in both directions. Drivers can use the Schuylkill Expressway (interstate 76) and Martin Luther King Drive on the other side of the river as alternate routes.
