Three taken to hospital, car in flames, following two-vehicle wrong-way crash in Reading

The driver of the vehicle that fled the scene is expected to face charges.

Three people were transported to the hospital after a two-vehicle wrong-way crash on Interstate 95 early Sunday morning in Reading, State Police said.

At 1:10 a.m., police responded to numerous calls reporting a wrong-way crash and found a car fully engulfed in flames on I-95 north in Reading, State Police spokesman David Procopio said in an e-mail. Two adult occupants of the flaming 2008 Chevrolet Uplander were transported to Lahey Hospital in Burlington, Procopio said. The nature of their injuries was not known, he said.

The other vehicle involved in the crash, a 2008 Dodge Nitro, fled the scene and was later found on Route 28 in Stoneham by local police, he said.
