PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A tractor-trailer accident on the Roosevelt Boulevard is snarling traffic Monday morning.

It happened on northbound Roosevelt Boulevard at 9th Street, around 5 a.m.


Officials say a tractor-trailer carrying 75 gallons of diesel fuel tried to cross the median and ruptured its gas tank.

Two inner lanes that were closed have since reopened. One outer lane remains blocked on the Boulevard.

No word on the driver’s condition or how long the cleanup will take.
