Jackknifed truck cleared from I-95
NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA - May 9, 2012 (WPVI) -- All lanes of Interstate 95 northbound in Northeast Philadelphia are cleared after a tractor-trailer jackknifed early Wednesday morning.

The fuel tank on the double FedEx tractor-trailer ruptured, leaking 125 gallons of fuel onto the roadway. Hazmat crews responded to the scene to empty the fuel tanks.
