    A tractor-trailer spilled its load of boxes of vodka onto a busy Philadelphia-area interchange Thursday morning causing nearly 10 hours of traffic problems.

    The crash closed the ramp from Woodhaven Road onto Interstate 95 near the Bucks County-Philadelphia line around 4 a.m.

    The crash continued to block the roadway into the afternoon as crews worked to unload boxes of Tito's Vodka and upright the tractor-trailer. The roadway finally reopened a little before 2 p.m.

    The truck driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries, firefighters said.

    Drivers were told to expect delays in the area. Drivers needed to exit Woodhaven Road at Bristol Pike then take that to Academy to continue on southbound I-95.

    Something that isn't suggested: Earlier, drivers were going the wrong way on Woodhaven to exit at Bristol Pike.
