13-year-old boy killed in accident that closed Interstate 95

- A 13-year-old boy was killed in a major accident that shut down Interstate 95 in both directions Tuesday night.

Authorities say the crash happened at around 9:15 p.m. on the northbound lanes of I-95 near the Intercounty Connector in Maryland. Highway officials say at least four vehicles, including a tractor trailer, were involved in the crash.

Investigators believe a black Honda Pilot became disabled in the roadway resulting in a collision with a Dodge Caravan and a tractor-trailer. A white Volkswagen was also involved.

Police say a 13-year-old boy, who was a passenger in the Dodge, was flown to Children's Hospital by where he succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the Dodge, identified as 45-year-old Tamara Moskowitz, was transported to Medstar in Washington, D.C. with life threating injuries.

The driver of the Honda, identified as 58-year-old Maria Chryssos, and the passenger, 35-year-old Anastacia Chryssos, were both transported to Prince George's Hospital Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the Volkswagen, identified as 53-year-old Linda Perline, was not injured in the collision.

I-95 was closed for approximately five hours, with some closures extending in to the early morning hours Wednesday.

The cause of the accident is still being investigated at this time.
