3 hurt in 9-vehicle pileup that closes I-95 for 2 hours

WHITE MARSH -A 17-year-old driver lost control of his car on Interstate 95 near White Marsh yesterday morning, causing a nine-car chain reaction crash that injured three and closed part of the highway for more than two hours, police said.

The driver, whose name was not released because of his age, was charged with negligent driving. His car was traveling north on I-95, between the Beltway and Route 43, at 8:30 a.m. when his car made an unsafe lane change, police said.

His car struck the right guardrail and bounced across the highway, striking the center Jersey wall, police said.

Nine vehicles, including a truck, collided, causing the truck's fuel tank to rupture. Police closed part of the highway, reopening all lanes at 11 a.m. Three people were taken to Franklin Square Hospital Center with minor injuries, and the Maryland Department of the Environment cleaned up spilled diesel fuel.
