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.
