10 hospitalized after I-70 accidents
Two car crashes on I-70 have sent 10 people to hospitals, some with life-threatening injuries.
The Maryland State Police says the first crash occurred early Sunday on eastbound I-70 when a Volkswagen Jetta collided with a Nissan Altima. Six people were transported to hospitals, and at least five other vehicles struck debris from the crash and were disabled.
In the second accident, a Honda Civic traveling eastbound on I-70 traveled off the roadway and overturned for unknown reasons. Two passengers in the rear seat were thrown from the car during the impact. Four people were taken to the hospital.
Police say alcohol appears to be a contributing factor in both crashes.
