According to responders, an unspecified number of vehicles crashed about two-thirds of a mile past Exit 18 (Sherwood Island Connector). Moderate damage and injuries were reported, prompting EMS teams to be sent on-site.

Interstate/highway accidents like this are typically cleared quickly to avoid additional accidents or placing emergency responders under unnecessary risk. That said, identifying the causes of these incidents will always be an important objective. Negligent individuals can be made liable for their actions, while injured parties may have the option of filing their own claims against these suspects.
