Delaware State Police have identified the man who was critically hurt after ramming his car into a parked tractor trailer along I-95 on Friday night, closing part of the highway for hours.

Twan Money, of Newark, Del., was driving his red 2009 Chevy Aveo southbound on the highway near the exit for Route 141 in New Castle, Del. around 7:40 p.m. on Friday when the crash occurred, state police said.

The 36-year-old suddenly accelerated and veered out of the left center lane and quickly into the left shoulder where a tractor trailer was parked. The car hit the rear passenger side of the truck -- the force sending the Chevy spinning into the center lanes of I-95, according to state police.

Money suffered severe injuries to the left side of his body, state police said. He was rushed to Christiana Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.

The 48-year-old tractor trailer operator, who is from Baltimore, Md. and was sleeping in the cab, was not hurt.

The collision forced authorities to shut down the highway for more than four hours as they cleaned up the mess.

Delaware State Police say its Collision Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate the incident.
