Three people were killed in a two-car accident on I-95 in Tacony last night, halting traffic on the busy interstate in both directions.
Police said the driver of a car traveling northbound shortly before 8 p.m. lost control of the vehicle near the Cottman Avenue exit. The car hit the guardrail and flipped over, ejecting both occupants, a man and a woman.
The man landed on the highway; the woman landed on State Road, which runs parallel to I-95. Both were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Their names were not released.
