Crash on I-95 delays traffic near Edgewood in Harford Co.

Heavy northbound Interstate 95 traffic near Edgewood in Harford County was forced to turn around and take detours after at least two vehicles collided on the highway Sunday afternoon, said State Police at the John F. Kennedy Barracks. Shortly before 4 p.m., a sport utility vehicle collided with at least one vehicle near the Edgewood exit and brought traffic to a temporary halt. Police said an undetermined number of people were taken by ambulances to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air with injuries not considered to be life-threatening. Police said that due to the crash and removal of the damaged vehicles, traffic was backed up for "quite a bit" and was finally rerouted to U.S. 40 before re-entering I-95 beyond the accident scene. The accident was being investigated by a State Police crash team.
