PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A crash involving multiple vehicles brought morning rush hour traffic to a halt on Tuesday morning along the Roosevelt Boulevard extension.
It happened around 4:45 a.m. in the southbound lanes of the Roosevelt Boulevard Extension between 9th Street, going on to I-76 in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia.
A driver had to be extricated from one of the vehicles.
The truck, meanwhile, veered off the road, ripped off the guardrail along a 40-yard stretch, and came to a rest teetering on the median into the northbound lanes, while leaking fuel onto the roadway.
The jaws of life were also used to free the truck driver.
Crews brought in a crane to lift up the tractor-trailer.
Police say one of the drivers, a 28-year-old, was taken to Temple University Hospital in critical condition. The second driver's condition is unknown.
