CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) — Five people were injured, two seriously, after a DUI crash on I-95 in Chester early Saturday morning.
The accident happened around 4 a.m. in the southbound lanes near mile marker 3.6.
Authorities say a car crashed into an unoccupied Pennsylvania State Police cruiser as the trooper was assisting people on the side of the highway.
Police say a state trooper was on the shoulder, blinkers on, behind a Saturn Ion that had run out of gas. They say the trooper and the three people who were in the car were standing next to the Ion when an 2003 Ford Windstar drove down the shoulder and caused a chain reaction by crashing into the state police car which then rammed the Ion.
The state trooper was not hurt, but the three people he was helping suffered minor injuries.
Police say two passengers in the Windstar were seriously injured. The driver, identified by police as 23-year-old Randall Boyles III, wasn’t hurt, but now faces DUI charges.
