Body Found in I-95 Collapse Wreckage; Officials Warn Major U.S. Artery Will Be Closed for “Months”

HeadlineJun 13, 2023

In Pennsylvania, authorities have recovered the body of a tanker truck driver who died after he lost control of his rig and crashed Sunday morning, triggering a fire that collapsed an overpass on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia. The disaster has halted traffic in both directions along the main East Coast artery connecting Florida to Maine. On Monday, Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro said officials would have a timeline for its reconstruction once engineers complete a review in the coming days.

Gov. Josh Shapiro: “With regards to the complete rebuild of I-95 roadway, we expect that to take some number of months.”
