A driver traveling south in the north bound lanes of Interstate 95 caused an accident involving multiple fatalities. The crash happened near Mill Drive, just into the twp. limits with Philadelphia. Preliminary reports were a total of two people transported to local hospitals in serious condition. That information is subject to change.
State police will have to determine where the south bound vehicle entered the expressway from. The crash happened about 1:45 AM. Ambulances were observed traveling to Jefferson Hospital, Torresdale Division. Fire companies remain on scene and I-95 is closed north from Academy Road in Philadelphia. Security camera footage shows the crash was at high speed. Due to the COVID-19 quarantine, roads are not as heavily traveled. This could have led the occupants of the wrong way vehicle to think they were traveling in the correct direction, with only a few cars passing them, especially if they were not from the area.
