A stretch of Roosevelt Boulevard in Northeast Philadelphia was closed in both directions late Friday morning into the afternoon after a box truck overturned and leaked oxygen.

The rollover caused the boulevard to shut down from Southampton to Comly roads. Drivers were advised to avoid the area before the crash was cleared around 1:30 p.m., NBC10 partner KYW Newsradio reported.

Fire, traffic and truck enforcement personnel were on the scene, Philadelphia Police Department spokesman Miguel Torres said.
