Seven Hurt in 10-Car Pileup on I-10
An 18-wheeler that could not stop in time rear-ended another vehicle, starting a chain reaction that involved 10 motor vehicles, according to news reports. In the aftermath, though seven people were injured, no one died. The accident occurred at about 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 26, shutting down both lanes and backing traffic up for miles on one of the busiest interstates connecting Maryland and Pennsylvania. The collision involved five cars, four tractor-trailers and a tow truck. The cleanup took almost seven hours.
Police have not released any information regarding their investigation, but a Pennsylvania State Police officer said that investigators would start with a thorough investigation of the truck and driver that started the chain reaction. They took blood samples to determine whether alcohol or drugs were involved, and will examine the truck to determine if there was vehicle failure.
