6:32 am
you figure two tankers loaded, you have homes right here, and, of course, busy stretch of i-95. the fact that they are letting traffic through, in school buses tells me that there is no immediate danger here, with a fire, explosion or gasoline leak, as we have the philadelphia fire fighters on the scene right there. see, probably that sand, from the oil, and it looks like, look at how close he is to puncturing the back of that tanker there on i-95. lets go to the maps. the heading southbound i-95, we're jammed, pretty much from girard avenue, all the waste through to center city, and, down into washington lane. now that accident is as soon as you you come out of the tunnels, the penns landing, tunnel there. this is on the way to stand by anybody try to get to philly international. i know it may sound crazy but if you are coming from northeast philadelphia or bucks county, go over one of the bridges and come down the
