6 are injured, 1 seriously, in separate I-95 accidents

March 18, 1993

Six people were injured, one seriously, in two traffic accidents yesterday that occurred within a mile of each other on fog-shrouded Interstate 95, according to authorities.

Sgt. Arnold H. Street of the Toll Facilities Police said the first accident occurred about 2 p.m. when a tractor-trailer and five cars collided in the northbound lane of I-95 just north of Caton Avenue in Baltimore.

One seriously injured victim was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, and five others were transported to three area hospitals, Sergeant Street said.

The cause of the accident was still under investigation last night, he said.

About 2:30 p.m., a disabled tractor-trailer in the southbound fast lane of I-95 near the Baltimore Beltway in Catonsville was rammed by a 1984 Pontiac, said Sgt. Joe Jenkins of the Golden Ring state police barracks.

One person, who was slightly injured, was treated and released from St. Agnes Hospital, he said.

Sergeant Jenkins said the driver of the car failed to see the tractor-trailer until it was "too late."

Both accidents caused long traffic backups.
