Three people were injured in a crash that created rush-hour havoc on Interstate 95 near White Marsh yesterday morning.
Two truck drivers were taken by ambulance to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, state police said.
State police said the accident occurred about a mile north of the Interstate 695 interchange after a station wagon had a flat tire. The vehicle was traveling about 30 mph in the right lane next to the slow lane when a tractor-trailer owned by Northeast Motor Freight struck the rear of the car.
A truck carrying Valentine's Day plants then struck the tractor-trailer and a second tractor-trailer sideswiped the plant truck, police said.
Windell Dearing, 28, a tractor-trailer driver from Baltimore, was in stable condition.
Robbie Sanders, 31, the driver of a plant truck, from Morrisville, Pa., was in serious condition, said Sgt. Michael Eye of the JFK state police barracks. Mr. Sanders, who worked for a Perkasie, Pa., flower wholesaler, was delivering a load of Valentine's Day potted plants to stores in Washington, D.C., said his boss, Alfred B. Cox.
