Multiple Crashes on I-95 in Delaware County Sunday

Police and fire personnel responded to multiple crashes early Sunday morning on I-95 in Delaware County, just miles from the border of Pennsylvania with Delaware. The first crash, a serious incident that led to firefighters having to extricate one victim from wreckage, occurred shortly after 7 AM Sunday.

According to initial reports, the driver of the vehicle was thrown from the car and then pinned underneath it when it landed on top of them in the woods off the highway. It took emergency crews roughly 30 minutes to stabilize the vehicle and free the victim from underneath the wreckage before transporting them to Crozer-Chester Medical Center.

The crash occurred less than one mile from the border of Delaware. There is no update on the victim’s status from emergency officials.

The second crash happened a little over two hours later just two miles north of the first crash on the same stretch of I-95 in Delaware County. The southbound lanes were completely blocked due to the second crash, which involved six vehicles, two of which were tractor-trailers.

Police closed the highway southbound at Route 322 (Conchester Highway) in order to provide emergency personnel with a safe area to operate. One minor injury was reported but delays lasted well past an hour due to the number of vehicles involved and debris in the roadway.

The Pennsylvania State Police at Media is the entity investigating both crashes.
