I-95 Accident claims life
Churchville, Md - (AP)

             A double accident Monday night on Interstate 95 in Harford
County killed a Havre de Grace man. State police say 42-year-old Michael
Muuss died when his car hit a vehicle left partially in the road after
the first crash. Muuss' car then spun into the path of a tractor-trailer,
which pushed him into a vehicle stopped on the right shoulder to help
victims of the earlier crash. The truck driver was taken to Harford
Memorial Hospital. The accidents occurred about 9:30 pm on the northbound
side of the highway in Churchville. The first involved two cars and a
tractor-trailer. A driver in that crash was treated at Harford Memorial
and released. Police say it's not clear why either accident occurred. No
one has been charged, but the investigation is continuing. Traffic was
able to get by for most of the night, but it took until 2 am before all
lanes were opened.

[Sigh.  -psl]
