BRIDGEPORT — I-95 North has reopened this morning, after a tractor-trailer accident Sunday evening.

This caused a chain reaction resulting in a total  of 5 cars involved. One car even lost control, hitting a concrete barrier and rolling onto its side.

6 people were taken to area hospitals for minor injuries.

The tanker truck involved was carrying antifreeze and DEEP was called in to help clean up.

28-year-old Erin Kelly, who police say was the driver that originally hit another car, was issued an infraction for following too close.
