Southbound lanes on I-95 are open again after a multi-vehicle accident in Delaware.
Officials say it happened at 8:40 a.m. on I-95 southbound at Churchman's Marsh in Newark. Investigators say Billy McLaurin, 65, of New Castle, was driving a school bus in the right lane while Daniel Hogan, 55, of Ephrata, was driving a tractor trailer behind the bus.
Police say the front of Hogan's tractor trailer struck the back of the bus, causing the bus to travel onto the right shoulder and strike the concrete barrier. Almost simultaneously, a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica driven by Nakia Brown, 33, of New Castle, struck the back of the tractor trailer. Finally, police say, a second bus, driven by Linda Frazer, 69, of Elkton, MD, sideswiped the front of the tractor trailer, damaging the bus' sideview mirror.
