An I-95 ramp in Pennsylvania is under serious repair after a tanker truck overturned and burst into flames yesterday.

The fire caused extensive damage on the exit ramp after burning for two hours on Thursday, injuring the driver and passenger inside of the tractor-trailer. Both remain hospitalized in critical condition.

The tanker contained some kind of oil substance, and created a plume of black smoke that could be seen from residents all over Bensalem Township.

“I ran out of the house. I looked towards 95 and I saw huge flames,” said Bill Fuchs.

According to ABC6, crews are ensuring all the oil is off the ground before the vehicle husk is removed.
