For many motorists, the interstate highways that criss-cross the United States are the most convenient and efficient roadways on which to travel. Interstate 95 in particular is one of the longest interstate highways in the country, stretching almost 2,000 miles along the east coast of the United States. A portion of I-95 also crosses the northern end of Delaware. Since this section of I-95 is always busy, car accidents are very common.
A recent crash on I-95 in Newport resulted in injuries to five people. The accident happened during the morning hours near the Churchmann’s Marsh exit. According to reports, a sedan crashed into a min-van that contained a man and two children.
Reportedly, there were two adults in the sedan. Police said the three adults and two children were injured in the crash and were transported to a local hospital for treatment. Reports said none of the injuries were life-threatening. Delaware State Police are currently investigating the accident.
Although interstates are convenient, they can also be very dangerous. Traveling at high speeds in bumper-to-bumper traffic can be intimidating for any driver, regardless of skill level. Tragically, I-95 in northern Delaware is the setting for far too many car accidents these days. Those in Delaware who have suffered injuries or loss due to negligence in an accident could benefit by seeking the services of an experienced attorney. A successfully litigated lawsuit could result in much-needed compensation to help victims and families recover any monetary losses that may have occurred as a result of this traumatic experience.
