The incident occurred one day after a tanker truck crashed on I-95 in northeast Philadelphia, starting a fire that caused a portion of the highway to collapse. The truck driver was found dead in the rubble a day later.
The man who was found dead Monday in the wreckage of the Interstate 95 bridge who collapsed Sunday in Philadelphia has been identified by his family.
