Baltimore Truck Accident Lawyers: I-95 Pileup Victims Stay HospitalizedDecember 19, 2016
Seven victims from the I-95 pileup that happened in Baltimore on Saturday, December 17, remain hospitalized. The car pileup, involving nearly 70 vehicles, jammed up the road for several hours, and took the lives of two individuals and injured nearly 25 others. Two individuals remain in critical condition, two are in serious condition, and three other individuals are in fair condition. The names of the two fatalities have not yet been revealed to the public.
During Saturday’s freezing rain and slick, icy conditions, around 70 cars created the I-95 pileup. A gasoline tanker truck skidded off the highway and exploded, but authorities are still investigating if that was the cause for the massive accident or if the truck just became part of the crash. After the pileup, emergency crews brought victims to the University of Maryland Medical Center where they continue to receive treatment at the Shock Trauma unit. The crash investigators state the investigation could take weeks or even months to determine the cause of the pileup. One of their methods for figuring out the cause will involve reconstructing the accident scene.
