I-76 Eastbound Closed Following Deadly, Fiery Tractor Trailer Crash

What has happened:

  1. At least one person died in a fiery wreck along the eastbound Schuylkill Expressway in Philadelphia Wednesday morning.

  2. Traffic back up for miles approaching the scene as crews spent hours investigating and working to clear up the crashed tractor-trailer.

  3. A load of produce fell onto a roadway below an overpass in Fairmount Park.

Philadelphia police are investigating a fiery crash that has killed one person and injured another on the I-76 Schuylkill Expressway early Wednesday.

The accident happened around 2:40 a.m. on the eastbound lanes of the expressway near the Girard Avenue exit in Fairmount Park.

Police said the crash involved a tractor trailer and another vehicle.

The cargo and part of that trailer caught fire and a portion fell over the expressway and down onto Sweetbriar Drive. What looked like cabbage and squash were seen strewn about the roadway below.

Apparently the truck was carrying boxes of produce, fruit or veggies, that spilled on the roadway.
