Five people were injured in Northeast Baltimore, Maryland on January 17 in a multi-vehicle collision. The accident occurred early in the morning on I-95, close to the divide with Interstate I-895.
Two sports utility vehicles, a box truck, and a work van were t involved in the crash. One person had to be extricated from the Jeep SUV by crew workers because part of the truck’s rear end had fallen on top of the Jeep.
A preliminary report by the Maryland Transportation Authority Police said that the Jeep and the box truck crashed into each other after trying not to hit the van and the other SUV, which had already collided with one another. The first accident appeared to have occurred because either the van or the SUV had stopped or slowed down.
One person was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Two of the other injured persons were taken to University of Maryland Medical Center. The other two victims were taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. The Maryland Transportation Authority Police said that the injuries were not life threatening.
