A collision of two tractor-trailers on I-95 in South Philadelphia that left one man dead and at least one other injured, and a five-alarm fire on nearby Delaware Avenue, caused monumental morning rush hour traffic jams today.
The trucks crashed in the northbound lanes of I-95 near Tasker Street at 2:54 a.m., police said, when one of the rigs hit an overhead sign. Its driver was found dead inside. His name was not released.
The driver of the other truck, Edward Coslin, 33, of National Park, N.J., was taken to Methodist Hospital, where his injuries and condition were not immediately known.
