For many in Massachusetts, the morning commute is the least desirable part of any given workday. Traffic can be a challenge, hours of work await, time is of the essence and few are at their best in the early morning hours. When one factors in the risk of becoming involved in a car crash, the morning commute is something that most people dread. A recent accident that took place as many drivers were commuting to work highlights the dangers inherent in road travel.
Upon preliminary investigation, police believe that the crash took place around 6:30 in the morning on a recent Friday. A total of three vehicles were involved, and at least two people were injured. Interstate 95 had to be shut down for a period of time in order to allow a helicopter to land and transport an injured driver to a nearby hospital.
Police believe that a driver who was traveling northbound on I-95 crossed the center median and entered the lanes of southbound traffic. At that point, a collision took place with two additional vehicles, although it is unclear the order in which those two cars were struck. The driver who required MedFlight transportation is believed to be the individual who crossed into the path of oncoming traffic.
The car crash remains under investigation, and no charges have been filed as of yet. Should Massachusetts police determine that one driver was negligent in the incident, that individual could face criminal charges. In addition, anyone injured in the crash also has the right to pursue a personal injury case against the negligent party.
