Welp, this isn't good. Truck just flipped at the base of the Ben Franklin Bridge WB in Old City. Traffic is getting by, but expect delays. Coming into Philadelphia, you may want to use the Betsy Ross or Walt Whitman. @6abc#6abctraffic pic.twitter.com/qOvDFs9DI2— Matt Pellman (@MattPellman) June 15, 2018
