One person is seriously injured following a crash on icy roads in Bensalem earlier this week.

While law enforcement responded to many calls in the local area, one of the most serious accidents may have been on I-95 in Bensalem. 

First responders received the call at 9:30 Tuesday morning. Two vehicles had crashed while heading southbound on I-95.

Police found a Nissan Rogue and Nissan Altima between Street Road and the Cornwells Heights Park & Ride. The collision damaged both cars, but the Altima clearly suffered the brunt of the crash.

State Trooper Nathan Branosky released more information on the victims Thursday morning.

Branosky reports a Philadelphia man, 21, was driving the Altima. Meantime, a 60-year-old woman from Levittown was driving the Rogue.

Authorities did not specify either victim’s name or who suffered the serious injuries. However, the man’s Altima appeared more damaged and completely crumpled in some areas.

Pennsylvania State Police Troop M responded to 47 crashes and 208 disabled vehicle calls Monday and Tuesday. Troop M covers Bucks, Northampton, and Lehigh Counties.

State officials repeatedly warned Pennsylvanians to only travel if absolutely necessary. PennDOT also imposed speed limit restrictions Monday through Wednesday, limiting vehicles to 45 miles per hour on major highways throughout the state, including I-95.

The National Weather Service says Bensalem received 10 inches of snow in the storm earlier this week.
