On the early morning of November 25, a motorist driving the wrong way on I-95 caused a head-on Philadelphia car wreck, killing 2 and injuring 3.
At nearly 2:30 a.m., state police received several reports of a vehicle that was driving the wrong direction on I-95. A short time after, a Pennsylvania auto accident occurred when the wrong way driver hit another car head-on.
Emergency crews arrived on the scene near the Broad Street ramp for the interstate in South Philadelphia just before 2:30 a.m.
Both drivers of the vehicles were killed in the accident.
31-year-old Shelton Mack, of Philadelphia, was driving alone in one vehicle.
The driver of the other vehicle was identified as Michael K. Ingram, 23, of Newark, Delaware. Three passengers were also in Ingram’s vehicle. They were taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital following the collision.
This accident is still under investigation. It is unclear which vehicle was traveling the wrong way on the interstate, as well as whether drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
Our sincere condolences go out to the friends and families of those who perished in this accident. We wish them the strength they need to make it through this difficult time.
