Alcohol believed to be factor in I-95 crash that injured 6 people in Delaware

CHRISTIANA, Delaware (WPVI) -- Police say alcohol was likely a contributing factor in Wednesday night's crash on I-95 in Christiana, Delaware.

It happened around 8:15 p.m. in the southbound lanes of I-95 near the Churchman's Road exit.

Police say the driver of a Nissan Altima slammed into a New Castle County patrol car that was stopped on the shoulder behind a disabled tractor-trailer. The lights on the patrol car were activated.

The Altima then careened off of the patrol vehicle and back into traffic, striking a Chevy Blazer which was also traveling southbound on I-95.

Six people including the officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash.

No charges have been filed at this time.
