Truck crash snarls I-95 traffic

June 07, 2007|By Gadi Dechter | Gadi Dechter,Sun Reporter

A tractor-trailer overturned on Interstate 95 in Southeast Baltimore about 3:30 p.m. yesterday, shutting down several southbound lanes for more than four hours and backing up rush-hour traffic for more than two miles, officials said.

The accident occurred in the left lane, just south of the Eastern Avenue overpass, according to Cpl. Jonathan Green of the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

Emergency crews had to cut into the overturned cab of the tractor to free the driver, who was taken to nearby Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment of injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, Green said.
