Cause of 3 car accident on I-95 south in Massachusetts unknown

Rush hour traffic on Interstate 95 south in Massachusetts was backed up for nearly 27 miles recently after an SUV collided with two other vehicles. At last report, police remained in the dark as to the cause of the deadly car accident. Once a cause is determined, the driver deemed to have been at fault could face criminal charges.

So far, police determined that an SUV originally in the northbound lanes of travel crossed the median into oncoming traffic in the southbound lanes. That vehicle struck another vehicle head-on. However, the northbound vehicle did not stop there. It continued on to slam into yet another vehicle before finally coming to rest.

The driver of the wrong-way vehicle managed to escape the crash with only minor injuries, and a 5-year-old passenger in the SUV survived the crash and was taken to an area hospital. Three people occupied the vehicle that was hit head-on. The driver died at the scene, and the other two other people in the car suffered serious injuries and were airlifted to Boston Medical Center. Emergency personnel transported two people from the third vehicle to a local hospital for unknown injuries. No further information on the conditions of the injured was available.

If negligence is documented on the part of the northbound driver, the injured parties and the family of the deceased victim may be entitled to an award of monetary damages allowable under Massachusetts law. Obtaining further details regarding the car accident could provide the information needed to satisfy the court that the apparent wrong-way driver was at fault. Any restitution that is awarded will never undo the damage caused that day, but it might relieve the financial burdens that invariably accompany car crashes of this nature.
