Last weekend, state police responded to almost 20 traffic accidents during a 6-hour period. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in these accidents, but state officials and police now say they believe that these car accidents may have been the result of a liquid spill that occurred on Saturday night.
The Saturday evening accident involved a Hyde Park man who drove his Honda Civic into a wall near a tunnel on Interstate-93. He was issued a citation. Following the accident, police responded to several more motor vehicle accidents in the same area. Hydraulic fluids and antifreeze may have contributed to these car crashes.
One injured driver, a 25-year old from Dorchester, was taken to New England Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries. The series of interstate accidents remains under investigation.
