Strong storm spawns multiple freeway crashes

WHITE MARSH, Md. (AP) — Dozens of vehicles crashed Saturday in separate accidents on I-95 as a strong storm blew through this Baltimore suburb, causing injuries and forcing authorities to close the highway.

Maryland State Police Cpl. Rob Moroney, who was on the scene, said he knew of at least 11 injured people who were taken to nearby hospitals. He said there were at least four large accidents along a five-mile stretch of the interstate.

A witness told WBAL-TV he saw at least 90 crashed vehicles. The station aired footage showing smashed vehicles littering the road and the median.
