On Thursday afternoon, a multi-vehicle accident occurred in New Castle, Delaware that hospitalized two victims. Around 5:26 pm, the crash involving three vehicles took place on Interstate 95 when an SUV driven by a 57-year-old man from Dover, Delaware collided with a sedan, which, in turn, collided with another car. The SUV driver then slammed into the median, which left him with serious injuries. The 27-year-old motorist who was driving the sedan sustained personal injuries while the driver of the other car escaped the multi-vehicle accident unscathed. Police believe the SUV driver may have suffered from a medical emergency during the crash.
Accidents involving several vehicles are commonly referred to as multi-vehicle accidents or chain reaction crashes. Oftentimes, a collision between two cars may lead to multiple accidents if drivers fail to use caution around the scene of the accident or cannot safely maneuver amid the debris of the first incident. Personal injuries ranging in severity and even fatalities may accompany a multi-vehicle accident.
