Interstates can be particularly dangerous roadways as they sustain thousands of vehicles a day. Whenever you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, we urge you to remain cautious and attentive to what is happening around you, and this is particularly relevant when driving on busy roads at high speeds.
Massachusetts State Police recently responded to an accident on the local interstate. On May 22, emergency responders received notification at 12:10 p.m. of an incident on I-93 Northbound. The accident occurred near Zakim Bridge, and upon arriving at the scene, police discovered a truck that had caught fire as a result of the accident. Firefighters arrived and were able to control the blaze without incident.
The accident did cause traffic delays as the two right lanes of the interstate were closed and vehicles slowed as they passed through the area. Minor injuries were reported but there were no fatalities at the time of posting
Injuries and Car Accidents
Car accidents can cause severe injuries to victims, and it is essential for all drivers to remember the responsibility they have to the others on the road to drive carefully and cautiously. Negligent driving puts you and others around you at risk of accident. When drivers endanger and injure others, the victims of these accidents have a right to seek compensation to help them as they can begin to recover.

We want to do everything we can to raise awareness about the importance of safe driving and the negative consequences reckless driving can wreak. Accidents can happen, however.
