Fatal Head On Collision Update

State Police say the driver going the wrong way on Interstate 95 in Hampden last night had a suspended license. Troopers are still attempting to locate relatives of the man, whose last address was in Carmel. The other driver killed in the head on collision was 39 year old James Curtis of Knox. His relatives were notified last night.

 

Troopers attempted to stop the wayward SUV which was traveling north in the southbound lanes. The vehicle failed to stop as a trooper attempted to block its way. Other troopers were in position to set up spike mats when the SUV slammed into Curtis’ pickup truck. Both drivers were killed instantly.

 

Initial indications are that the SUV was originally headed south in the southbound lanes and for some reason turned around and started traveling the wrong way. More info on the driver that caused the crash will be released once next of kin have been located.
