PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A storm expected to bring and early taste of winter is causing slick road conditions across the region. There were two accidents about a mile from each other in Northeast Philadelphia Tuesday morning.
Officials say a vehicle struck a tree while heading northbound on the Roosevelt Boulevard at Comley Road just after 6 a.m.
Another crash happened just a mile down the road in the southbound lanes of the Roosevelt Boulevard when a driver hit a deer at Southampton Road.
