    Poor journalism or sensationalism? It’s the same with the weather. A few weeks ago a storm “tore” through the south and later “slammed” the northeast. When I was younger we simply called this winter.

    Trucks need to be BANNED from the interstates in weather like this, this ALWAYS happens.

    1. Brooke says:

      Ice can NOT be helped Bob. These drivers have by far more miles driven then the typical motorist. Ban the rigs for weather and be prepared to pay double for your comodoties.

  3. A-Train says:

    Mayor Nutter just said that the truck driver was doing an excellent job considering the slick roads and he “marveled” at his skill

    Don’t look like “jackknifed” to me. Seems it skidded across the road and jumped the median and guard rails.

    1. ZZBar says:

      Yes, poor journalism choices.

  5. Joe says:

    So then I-95 is NOT really closed, just this one section of an Exit onto I-95:

    “Drivers are able to use the exit lanes at Philadelphia International Airport to get around the accident and back on to I-95.”

    The title of this article is very misleading and shows poor journalism choices.
