Abingdon man killed in wrong-way crash on I-95, police say

RIVERSIDE - An Abingdon man was killed early yesterday when his car, headed south in the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 near Route 543, slammed head-on into a truck and triggered a five-vehicle crash, state police said.

Frank William Watt Jr., 29, of the 4000 block of Abingin Drive was killed when his 1986 Oldsmobile Calais struck a 2001 Dodge Ram truck driven by David Allen French of the 300 block of Barros Court in Havre de Grace, said Cpl. Christopher Tideberg of the state police. French's truck was struck from behind by another truck, sending it into the path of a van and tractor-trailer, Tideberg said.

French was in serious but stable condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Three children in French's vehicle were treated at Harford Memorial Hospital and released, hospital officials said.
