The resulting fire caused a portion of the roadway to collapse.The collapse left the tanker operator, 53-year-old Nathaniel Moody, whose family says he was an experienced driver with more than 10 years of experience, dead. It also left the northbound and southbound lanes of I-95 closed between the Woodhaven Road and Aramingo Avenue exits. The damage has caused delays and traffic nightmares for commuters in Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley, and across the northeast. The cousin of a truck driver whose truck flipped and sparked a fire that destroyed part of I-95 in Philadelphia is searching for answers.
