Preliminary investigation shows that a vehicle was traveling northbound on I-95 when it suddenly stopped in the passing lane while a Trooper was conducting a traffic stop on the left side of the Interstate at MM 183. That caused the vehicle traveling behind the suddenly stopped vehicle to be rear-ended by the car behind her which then caused the multi-vehicle crash.
The initial car which stopped was not hit from behind and continued driving. The driver of the second vehicle was not able to get a description of the vehicle.
One person was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
