A massive 10-vehicle car collision shut down Interstate 83 northbound in southern Pennsylvania, a major traffic artery for commuters coming out of Baltimore. The chain reaction auto accident injured seven people and backed up traffic for hours, according to news reports. The scene was chaos, twisted metal from with multiple crushed cars and a tractor-trailer rig carried on the back of a flatbed truck blocking the entire highway. It took emergency crews hours to clear the roadway.
Authorities believe that alcohol may have been a factor in a recent fatal car accident in Middle Paxton Township. The early morning accident happened when a driver went the wrong way on the road, heading westbound in the eastbound lanes, and collided head-on into another vehicle. The wrong-way driver was injured and flown to a nearby hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.
