40+ Vehicle Crash on I-95 Results in Two Deaths, Others Injured
Early Saturday morning, the Interstate 95 in South Baltimore was shut down after a large commercial truck and dozens of other vehicles crashed on the icy roads. As a result of the crash, 15 people were injured, three of them considered to be seriously injured. Two others were killed.
Just before 5:00 A.M., emergency crews arrived at the scene and stated that there were at least 55 total vehicles involved in the crash.
Baltimore City Fire Chief Roman Clark issued a statement, asking travelers to avoid the I-95 and for those stranded in traffic on the road to remain in their vehicles.
Authorities claimed that the tanker slid off the side of the bridge and came down on the street below, where it exploded.
Investigations into the cause of the accident should begin today and more will be known about what happened in this crash. One witness who recorded the accident claimed that vehicles were traveling at 50 or 60 miles an hour, sliding and slamming.
This is one of 12+ crashes that has occurred in this area due to the freezing rain and the accumulated ice on the road.
Our entire team at Murphy, Falcon & Murphy sends our condolences to those affected by this devastating situation.
