Truck Wrecks Out On I-95 South of Baltimore! Slides Off The Ice Falls Onto Lanes Below And Explodes Into Flames!
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A crash involving dozens of vehicles and a tractor-trailer shut down Interstate 95 in South Baltimore Saturday morning.
At least two people were killed and 11 were injured in the icy pileup, three of those seriously.
Emergency crews at the scene said at least 40 vehicles and one tanker were involved in the crash near the exit for Washington Boulevard on I-95 south just before 5 a.m.
Traffic was at a stand still for hours while crews assessed the situation. Authorities say the tanker went off the bridge and fell down to the street below.
We’re asking people that are stranded in their cars at this time, if they would, please shelter in place within your cars, remain warm,” said Baltimore City Fire Chief Roman Clark. “We’re also asking travelers to avoid 95 at all costs.”
Crews from Howard County and Baltimore County were called to the scene to help.
