A traffic camera took a clear photo of the accident scene of the second of today’s crashes that occurred at I-95 southbound.
There was a pair of crashes; one of them was fatal which snarled traffic on southbound I-95 through Philadelphia for hours today.
After reopening a ramp from I-95 southbound to the Vine Street Expressway (I-676) from a predawn crash involving a tractor trailer loaded with trash, the southbound I-95 was shut down again due to a multi-vehicle pileup in the tunnel under Walnut Street.
Police have identified the woman killed in a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 southbound in Penn’s Landing which occurred about 9 a.m. and involved a box truck, a tractor-trailer and three passenger vehicles.
Pennsylvania State Police stated 38-year-old Nicole M. Sloan, of Philadelphia, succumbed as a result of the crash at 8:45 a.m. under the Spruce Street overpass.
According to investigators, there were six vehicles involved, including Sloan’s 2010 Honda Accord, a tanker truck and a box truck.
The traffic was stopped in the left lane when a Freightliner box truck, driven by 40-year-old Anthony Taylor of Chester, failed to stop and hit Sloan’s Honda.
That crash pushed Sloan’s car into the right lane where it was hit by a tanker truck driven by 55-year-old James Gills of Blackwood, New Jersey.
Sloan was pronounced dead at Hahnemann University Hospital.
Three other vehicles were involved in this crash. One of those drivers suffered minor injuries.
I-95 southbound was closed for several hours following the crash.
There has been no word on any charges so far as this investigation continues.
