Overturned tractor-trailer on Ben Franklin Bridge delays traffic into Philadelphia

Delays are expected throughout the morning as road crews work to upright an overturned tractor-trailer on the inbound side of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. 

The accident happened near the 5th and Race Streets shortly after midnight. A long line of traffic stretched across the bridge Thursday morning as delays were still being felt hours after the crash.

Police have not said what caused the truck to flip onto its side. The drive is expected to be okay.

FOX 29's Bob Kelly suggests motorists traveling into Philadelphia on Thursday morning use the Walt Whitman Bridge or Betsy Ross Bridge.
