A Bristol Township car accident involving 35 vehicles left several people injured as the vehicles reportedly collided in icy road conditions. The accident took place at approximately 2:45 on Sunday morning, October 30, 2011, along Interstate 95.
According to Pennsylvania State Police, the 35-vehicle accident occurred early Sunday morning on northbound I-95 near mile marker 38. It was unclear as to how many people were injured in the wreck and whether or not anyone was hospitalized or killed as a result of the crash. Police did not immediately release the identities or any information about those involved in the accident.
Weather is believed to be a contributing factor in the crash. Saturday’s storm left nearly 18 inches of snow on the ground and left a slippery coating of black ice on the interstate. The storm also left tens of thousands of residents without power in Bucks County.
The early-morning Bristol Township car accident remains under investigation by local authorities. It is unclear as to what or who may have caused the 35-vehcile pile-up.
This is a terrible accident, and we extend our thoughts and best wishes to everyone that has been affected by this tragedy.
