Nutter stops to help at I-76 accident scene

Posted: March 25, 2012

Mayor Nutter and his security detail were on the scene to help an injured motorist after an early-morning car crash Saturday on I-76 in Philadelphia, according to police radio reports and mayoral spokesman Mark McDonald.

Nutter was in his police-driven SUV about 2:45 a.m., headed home to Wynnefield from City Hall, McDonald said, when a two-car accident happened behind them in the westbound lanes near Girard Avenue. The mayor's vehicle was not involved.

The security detail pulled over, and the mayor called 911, McDonald said. One of the cars had smashed into the concrete barrier and a woman was dazed with a cut on her head, McDonald said. Nutter and his detail provided towels and water and waited with the injured woman until a fire engine and paramedics arrived.

According to reports, a 27-year-old woman involved in the crash was in stable condition at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania with a head injury. - Mike Newall
