Philadelphia, PA (April 24, 2023) – On Monday, April 24th, a multi-vehicle accident involving at least two drivers apparently occurred on a roadway through the heart of Philadelphia, injuring several victims.
At approximately 6:15 p.m., two or three automobiles collided on northbound Interstate 95 between Broad Street and the Walt Whitman Bridge, according to the Philadelphia Police Department.
The crash, the cause of which is unknown, badly damaged all vehicles involved.
Emergency medical technicians (EMTs), paramedics, and fire rescue teams from Philadelphia rushed to the area to aid police officers. Although officials have not confirmed the identity of the victims or the severity of their injuries, paramedics reported several casualties.
Major delays occurred as a result of the situation, where police spent nearly an hour investigating. The Philadelphia Police Department is investigating the crash’s surrounding circumstances, but they haven’t released any information about their findings in the interim.
Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their loved ones at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
