On Tuesday morning, March 14 in Maryland, three vehicles, including a tractor-trailer, collided. The New Jersey driver, 56, was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to the Maryland State Police, Delando Woody was pronounced dead at the site of the I-95 disaster near College Park after his tractor-trailer became involved in a chain-reaction accident.
State troopers in Maryland reported that a 45-year-old man driving a Dodge Charger south on I-95 collided with a Toyota pickup driven by a 22-year-old male.
The impact of the collision flipped the truck into the median, and Woody’s tractor-trailer in the opposite northbound lanes of the interstate collided with Woody’s Charger.
Officials confirmed that the Charger driver was transported to MedStar Washington Medical Center in Washington, DC. Both of the Toyota’s occupants were transferred to the Adventist HealthCare White Oak Medical Center in Silver Spring for treatment.
Paramedics pronounced Woody dead at the spot, and his body was taken to Baltimore for an autopsy at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
When authorities investigated and cleared the scene of the deadly accident, it took up to seven hours for traffic to return to normal on I-95. To help clean up the diesel fuel that had leaked, the Maryland Department of the Environment was also dispatched.
The incident, it has been reported, is still being looked into by the Crash team of the Maryland State Police. Depending on what the inquiry reveals, charges may be filed.
