November 09, 1999|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A man was critically injured yesterday when a car he was driving crashed into two tractor-trailers during the evening's rush-hour on northbound Interstate 95 in northern Baltimore County, causing a three-mile traffic jam, state police said.

Tsung-Pin Chen, 54, of Phoenix, was in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center, a nursing supervisor said last night.

Sgt. Boyd Trantham said Chen was driving a Toyota Camry that rear-ended a tractor-trailer in the right lane just south of Interstate 695, careered across two lanes, hit the side of another truck and became wedged underneath.

Trantham said Chen was the only person injured. The northbound lanes of the highway were closed until 6 p.m. The accident was being investigated.
