This accident occurred shortly after a tractor trailer overturned on the Vine Street Expressway, less than a mile away. It tore up rush hour.
A chain reaction crash that shutdown I-95 for several hours Thursday, left one person dead and four others injured.
According to investigators, 38-year-old Nicole M. Sloan, of Philadelphia, was stopped in the left lane of travel on I-95 South enroute to the Columbus Blvd. exit when a box truck failed to stop, striking Sloan’s vehicle causing a chain reaction crash. State police say the impact propelled her vehicle into the right lane where it was struck by tanker truck. Sloan was transported to Hahnemann University Hospital where she was pronounced dead. (LINK)
