Interstate 95 in Philadelphia Collapses

 It happened over the weekend. America is literally falling apart. Just like the old Soviet Union. From The Blaze:

A portion of Interstate 95 collapsed Sunday morning as a tanker burned beneath an overpass in northeast Philadelphia, WPVI reported.

"This morning, a large tanker truck fire under I-95 near the Cottman Avenue exit in Northeast Philadelphia caused a portion of the highway to collapse. Pennsylvania State Police closed I-95 in both directions around the area," Sarah Peterson, Communications Director for Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney's office told TheBlaze in a statement Sunday morning.

 "The fire is under control and City and state agencies are responding to address impacts to residents in the area and travelers affected by the road closure. We will share more details as they become available."

All lanes were closed on both the northbound and southbound sides of I-95, Pennsylvania's Department of Transportation announced in separate tweets around 6:40 a.m.

A photo shared by Fox 29 on Twitter shows a knot of vehicles stopped just ahead of a massive plume of smoke on the northbound side of I-95 near the Cottman and Academy Road exits. (Read more.)
