The man, identified by family as Nathaniel Moody, was exiting I-95 onto Cottman Avenue on Sunday around 6 a.m. According to, The truck was carrying 8,500 gallons of gasoline, when he lost control of the vehicle while navigating a turn at the end of the exit, according to investigators.

The truck “landed on its side,” and the crash into the wall ignited the fire,  Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Secretary Mike Carroll told the media.

“My cousin is a hardworking man. Family man. Good husband and father to his wife and daughter,” Alex Moody, Moody’s cousin,  told NBC10. “We’ve always been cool and tight. He’s very mild mannered. Calm guy. Really calm person. He gets along with everybody.”

According to NBC10, the trucking company Nathaniel Moody worked for was sought after for remarks but they declined to comment.
