On June 24, 2022 at approximately 12:16 a.m., a silver 2008 Lincoln MKZ was traveling northbound on Interstate 495 approaching the area of Exit 1 for US Business Route 13.

During this time, a blue 2017 Honda Accord was traveling northbound on I-495 approaching the Lincoln’s location. The Accord partially crossed over the white shoulder line, and as a result its front right corner struck the rear left corner of the stopped Lincoln MKZ. After the collision, the Lincoln was spun in a clockwise direction until it struck a guardrail on the east side of the roadway where it came to rest. The Honda subsequently flipped onto its roof and slid northbound until it came to rest on the interstate.

CAMDEN — Sometime toward the end of October, 13 people will climb into 76ers uniforms to begin again what has come to seem impossible. There will be new players and familiar ones, tougher players and some of the non-contact variety, players hungry to complete an ongoing project and others anxious to join the effort as it nears, one way or another, its conclusion. And while there are plentiful certainties — Joel Embiid, both of his hands surgically repaired in the interim, will return and promise to dominate — there is also the reality that neither Daryl Morey nor Doc Rivers is interested in a 2021-22 play back.
