Passenger Thrown From Vehicle, I-495 SB Closed

Just after 9:00 Friday morning rescue crews responded to I-495 SB in the area of Philadelphia Pike for reports of a rollover crash with ejection.

Arriving crews closed the highway and asked for confirmation that Trooper 4 was en route. Trooper 4 landed at the scene and was used to transport the patient to the trauma center.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that the driver was ejected from the vehicle.
