A woman was temporarily trapped in her car after a serious accident on Interstate I-95 in Joppa late Wednesday morning.

I apologize, I commented on the wrong story. I knew the woman who lost her life at the Rte 24/Wheel Rd accident. I'm hoping everyone is okay with all these crazy accidents and agree with JR stop acting like your appt/job/activity is more damn important than your or others lives. Please drive responsibly.

Thanks, Steven. I just happened to know the woman who died at the 924/Wheel accident, so I'm a bit hurt and sad for her family. (I commented on the wrong accident news report) I hate to say it, but it just seems whenever someone's taken to UC that needs critical help they don't make it; a lot of citizens feel this way. I realize we don't know the details of all these situations, but it's not very comforting.
