Traffic Hell

The westbound lane of the Braga Bridge has been closed to traffic after an accident occurred following a high speed police chase.
The accident happened in Somerset.
According to WJAR Channel 10 news police gave chase to a car which was heading the wrong way on Interstate 195 when the accident occurred.
Drivers can expect major delays on both the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-195.

I just spent hours in that mess. Apparently some bozo was playing Grand Theft Auto 3: SouthCoast for real. Multiple crashes, erratic driving, severe vehicle damage, high speed chase, and driving the wrong way on an interstate.

More info (but not much) in the Projo.

The Projo article doesn't clarify things at all. He was driving with the hood up?? No wonder he crashed into stuff and went the wrong way...

On Ch. 12 news they said he had been in prison before for auto theft and such.

Under different circumstances, coverage of this story might have been better; however, there were some other spectacular crashes in RI last night.

"I just spent hours in that mess."

This is precisely why I never have a full cup of coffee before I leave the house.
