it's in lawncrest. it's an accident involving a tractor-trailer that struck several cars and then caught fire and right now it's in the speed way. the gas station parking lot. truck on fire in the gas station parking lot. maybe not the best situation. oxford and levick is where it's all going down in lawncrest. definitely a good intersection to avoid. let's show you these slow speeds. 27 miles an hour southbound on 95 from the betsy ross bridge on into inn toward girard. looks like we believe a broken down vehicle here on the side. northbound on 95 but slower speeds are southbound. it's not a bad delay just a little bit sluggish as you head towards center city. then farther south on 95 and southbound in wilmington we've seen a few slow speeds because of a crash near the stadium in the left lane but those speeds are increasing so i'm thinking that crash might be clearing out. as has our broken down vehicle on 42 near gloucester city southbound side. all lanes reopened. dv is out of the way. northbound side of 42 a little bit of volume headed up toward two night.
